The Mack Institute asks
On 10 December 2019, how many total locations with Combined Charging System (CCS) fast chargers will be installed in the European area?
The adoption of electric vehicles is subject to a "chicken and egg" problem where potential consumers want a more extensive charging network, but businesses want more electric cars on the roads to justify building those new charging stations (Reuters, Inside EVs). Europe has gone from zero Combined Charging System (CCS) fast charger locations in 2014 to 5,712 as of 14 December 2018. This question will be suspended on 9 December 2019 and closed using the total installed charger locations listed on 10 December 2019 from the "CCS Charge Map – Europe" website. If during the question's open period the source adds additional countries to the European area list, they will count.
The question closed "Between 8,000 and 8,999, inclusive" with a closing date of 10 December 2019.
