Create speedometer chart with the help of Doughnut chart

Please do as follows step by step to create a speedometer chart in Excel.

1. Before creating a speedometer chart, you need to prepare some data at first.

  • Create the first value range and parts you want to display in the speedometer chart. Here I will separate the speedometer into three parts, so I type 30, 60, 90 separately into A2, A3 and A4, then in the cell A5, type the total number of numbers that typed in the above three cells.
  • Create the second value range. Go to the blank range next to the Value column, and type 10 and 5 separately into D2 and D3, and then copy the below formula into cell D4. See screenshot:
    =360-(D2+D3)

3. Select data in the Value column, click Insert > Insert Pie or Doughnut Chart > Doughnut. See screenshot:

4. Right click the doughnut chart and select Format Data Series from the context menu.

5. In the opening Format Data Series pane, type 271 into the Angle of first slice textbox and close the pane.

5. Right click on the biggest point, and click Format Data Point in the context menu.

6. In the Format Data Point pane, go to the Fill & Line tab, check the No fill box in the Fill section, and then close the pane. You can see the biggest point is disappeared from the chart.

7. Right click on the doughnut to select Select Data from context menu.

8. Then in the popping Select Data Source dialog, click the Add button.

9. In the Edit Series dialog, specify the new series name, select the series values and click OK. See screenshot.

10. Click OK when it returns to the Select Data Source dialog box.

11. Right click the second doughnut (the outside one), click Change Series Chart Type.

12. Under the All Charts tab, click to open the Combo section, select Pie from the Pointer series, check the Secondary Axis box, and click OK. See screenshot:

13. Then select and right click the pie chart, select Format Data Series from the context menu.

14. In the opening Format Data Series pane, type 270 into the Angle of first slice textbox under the Series Options tab, and then close the pane.

15. Select only the biggest point of pie, right click to select Format Data Point.

16. In the Format Data Point pane, check the No fill option and close the pane.

17. Then repeat the step 14 and 15 to remove the fill color of the remaining bigger one in pie. Remove the chart border, chart title and legend as you need. Then you can see the chart shown as below:

18. Click at the pointer, and right click to select Add Data Label.

19. Click the appeared label, and click it again to edit it. Type = into the formula bar, and then select the cell D2 you have typed 10 in step 1, and then press the Enter key.

Now the speedometer chart is created. From now on, when you change the value in cell D2, the pointer will automatically change in the speedometer chart. See below demo:

    I'm sure I'm making a simple mistake, but whichever element I add second won't render properly. The pie chart (which renders fine by itself) comes out as a solid block when added as a 2nd element after creating the doughnut. What am I doing wrong?

    Is there a way to flip the pointer? this is great if 0 is on the left and 100% on the right, but if you wanted it reversed.... this this possible?
    • To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.
      Bob · 3 months ago
      Yes. You need to put the value in D2 as 360 less whatever you want the reverse to be. So if you wanted to show -10, then the fomula in D2 should be =360-10

    Thanks for the formulas... I tried it & found that if we treat the value of 50% pie chart (the visible portion), i need to formulate cell D2 "value" x 1.8 or 1.81 in order for the "pointer" to be at the correct location in relation to the visible chart.

    Example:
    1. Base pie chart (pie chart no.1) is divided into 2 parts (50-50)
    2. cell D2 "value" pointer to show 50%
    2a. must insert a formula of (n) x 1.8 into cell D2
    3. in order for the Series Data label to display the intended value of 50%, you must use another cell (example E2) & key in the value of 50

    I hope this helps... :)

    Excellent tutorial. Is there a way to show both positive and negative figures. Maybe putting the 0 position at say the top of the speedo and having the needle swing left for negative and right for positive figures.

    Hi, All this information is wrong. I did not find any "Format Data Series" option in Excel 2013. I don't know where is it coming from. Before posting it why don't you check. When I right click it shows format chart area and not format data series.

      The information is NOT wrong! The options are right there, provided you're clicking in the right place... which you obviously aren't.
      Great tutorial... Thanks!

    I think you should mention that the value in cell D4 is in fact (A8*2) otherwise the pointer value will not work.
