In Japan there are more electric car charging points than petrol filling stations
Charge points in the country exceeded petrol stations last year. Japanese plug-in drivers are no more afflicted by range anxiety, so electric vehicles are taking off. And now Japan bets on hydrogen cars.
There are about 40,000 electric charging points today in Japan for private and public electric cars compared with 34,000 petrol filling stations. This was revealed in a recent study conducted by Nissan on last year’s data.

Improved infrastructure will boost sales of So Japan has a wealth of choices on which kind of vehicles and charging infrastructure to bet on.
