    Not only Estonia. Norway have over 50 CHAdeMO chargers. Linschoten city (Holland) won 30 Nissan chargers.

    Some video about Estonia's ELMO project:

    The question is how many EVs they selling. In whole 2011 only 52 i-MiEV, 2 C-Zero & 2 iOn.

    200 CHAdeMO chargers when the Combo plug was recently chosen as the standard for the EU? Isn't that strange?

    Fancy movie, but I wonder why they need so many chargers for a country that's roughly 250x250km (150x150miles)?
    Plus most cars will charge overnight at home anyway, makes me wonder why they want to create such a big/expensive network of DC chargers...

    Well Estonia is a poorer country, GDP - per capita (PPP): $21,200 (2012 est.) than say Sweden GDP - per capita (PPP): $41,700 (2012 est.), so they are more likely going to drive electric cars with smaller batteries because they are cheaper. Smaller cars need to charge more often outside of the home the charging points are no further than 60km (37 miles) apart.

    The 165 chargers were produced and installed by engineering group ABB, and construction was financed from the government's sale of 10 million surplus CO2 emission permits to Japan's Mitsubishi Corporation according to Reuters.
