Tennessee Numbers – EVs and EVSE
Number of BEVs in TN = 12,529
Number of PHEVs in TN = 5,922
Total PEVs = 18,451
EVSE – Charging Infrastructure
Number of Level 2 charging ports in TN = 1,168
Number of DCFC ports, all types in TN = 234
Level 2 ports breakdown: J1772 = 1,022; Tesla = 146
DCFC ports breakdown: CCS = 80; Tesla = 136; CHAdeMO = 50
> BEV = “battery electric vehicle” and means only all-electric vehicles.
> PHEV = “plug-in hybrid vehicle” and means vehicles that have a combination of an electric-drive system with a battery, and some size (large or small) of an internal combustion engine (ICE) in them as well.
> PEV = “plug-in electric vehicle” and means all vehicles that have a plug: BEVs and PHEVs.
> EVSE = “electric vehicle supply equipment” and is the broad name for all EV charging equipment no matter size or charging speed.
> “Level 2” charging refers to single-phase, 220-240 volt (V), alternating-current (AC) charging equipment. In size, they are typically the size of 1-2 shoe boxes, minus any stanchions.
> DCFC = “direct current fast charging” and refers to three-phase, 480V, direct current (DC) charging equipment. DCFC equipment is typically about as tall (or taller) than a refrigerator and about half as deep.
- The EV data above is as of 3/31/22; the EVSE data above is as of 4/24/22.
- All data shown below is as of the end of that period (i.e., year, quarter).
- The EV numbers are from registration data from the State of Tennessee Department of Revenue.
- The EVSE numbers are all coming from the U.S. DOE’s Alternative Fuel Data Center (AFDC) Station Locator.
