Nissan and CarCharging Team-Up to Expand Electric Vehicle Quick Charger Network

Posted by at 7:02 pm on May 14, 2013

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANissan and CarCharging Group today announced they are working together to make EV charging more readily available and to expand consumer awareness of the electric car market.  Together they will determine the placement of the chargers, which is expected to be in key markets throughout the United States by the end of 2013.

Nissan’s quick charge stations drastically reduce charging times, charging a fully depleted Nissan LEAF to 80 percent capacity in approximately 30 minutes. The initial goal for the initiative is to deploy the 48 Nissan-branded quick chargers primarily in California and on the East Coast.

As a part of the initiative, CarCharging will continue to educate consumers about how the EV charging infrastructure enhances the adoption and use of electric cars. This campaign will include tools to communicate the charging opportunities for drivers without private garages, such as residents of apartment and condo communities; the ease and benefits of public EV charging; and charging subscription offerings.

CarCharging is also developing a mobile application to provide real-time charging station location information with turn-by-turn directions and access capability for all CarCharging EV charging stations, including ChargePoint and Nissan’s quick chargers. CarCharging will also offer its proprietary evCharge card at no cost to all Leaf drivers at participating Nissan dealerships. The evCharge card allows drivers to initiate use and payment at all public charging stations on the ChargePoint Network, the largest national online network connecting EV drivers to EV charging stations.

EV drivers can easily pinpoint the new quick charger stations as well as all of CarCharging’s EV charging station locations and request CarCharging’s evCharge card via its website at www.CarCharging.com.
