Only 60% of U.S. Electric Vehicle DC Fast Charging Ports >50 kW — Chart

DC fast chargers are critical to reducing charging times for electric vehicles (EVs). The more power a charging station can supply, the faster an EV can charge, provided that the vehicle is engineered to accept those power levels. Early DC fast charging stations were often capped at 50 kilowatts (kW). However, a majority of DC fast charging ports now exceed 50 kW with some ports supplying up to 350 kW of peak power.
