Germany. Operating for 16 hours a day for 107 days, the car refueled almost 400 times, using over 1,000 kilograms (2,205 pounds) of hydrogen. The Mirai had no problems over the course of the extensive testing. "The fuel cell operated with 100 percent reliability," says KJ Tech Services Project Manager Patrick Hake. "This was also the case during a week in which the outside temperature dropped to minus 20 degrees Centigrade [minus four degrees Fahrenheit], when no problems with cold starts were reported."

Factors which are driving the electric vehicle charging stations market include government subsidies and incentives, increasing use of EVs, and the growing need to reduce carbon emissions.
"Battery electric vehicles expected to lead the electric vehicle market between 2016 and 2022"
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) categorizes battery electric vehicles (BEVs) as zero-emission vehicles because they produce no direct emissions. BEVs use no other fuel; the widespread use of these vehicles could significantly reduce the petroleum consumption. Further, BEVs have several other advantages such as comparatively longer driving range than PHEVs, smooth operation, stronger acceleration, and less maintenance than ICEs.
"AC charging stations expected to lead the electric vehicle charging stations market"
AC charging stations are expected to hold the largest share of the electric vehicle charging stations market during the forecast period. AC chargers are less expensive, convenient, and require less modification or upgrades as they work on 120V or 240 V AC, which is same as that used for residences. Thus, a majority of EV owners prefer AC chargers over DC fast chargers.
"Market for public charging stations expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2022"
The demand for public charging stations is increasing in the market. These public charging stations are located at on-street parking lots, taxi stands, retail stores, government offices, and parking lots of work places, hotels, airports, shopping malls, fast food restaurants, and coffee shops. Some public charging stations offer free charging and others could charge a fee.
"APAC expected to be the largest market for electric vehicle charging stations during the forecast period"
APAC is expected to lead the Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Market between 2016 and 2022. The growth is attributed to high EV infrastructure spending and the increasing use of electric vehicles to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Further, governments in the region are investing a large amount for the R&D related to EVs and the expansion of the charging infrastructure as a key for a transformation to a "low carbon society".
Major players involved in the development of electric vehicle charging stations include ABB Ltd. (Switzerland), AeroVironment Inc. (U.S.), ChargePoint Inc. (U.S.), Delphi Automotive Plc.(U.K.), Eaton Corp. Plc. (Republic of Ireland), Elektromotive Limited (U.K.), GE Company (U.S.), Pod Point Ltd. (U.K.), Schneider Electric SE (France), SemaConnect Inc. (U.S.), Siemens AG (Germany), and Tesla Motors Inc. (U.S.).
