Nissan and EVgo are expanding the charging network for EV users with the installation of 200 direct-current fast chargers (DCFC) in the United States. Each of the new fast-chargers is capable of delivering 100kW and have both CHAdeMO and CCS connectors so more EV drivers can benefit.
More than 100 million Americans currently live within a 15-minute drive of an EVgo fast charger, including those built with Nissan along the I-95 corridor on the East Coast, and the DRIVEtheARC corridor in California from Monterey to Lake Tahoe.
The joint investment by Nissan and EVgo expands a six-year link between two of the early providers in transportation electrification in the U.S. Nissan has installed more than 2,000 quick-charge connectors in the country since 2010.
“EVgo is thrilled to expand our six-year partnership with Nissan to provide convenient and reliable fast charging to EV drivers, including Nissan LEAF drivers, on the nation’s largest and most reliable public network,” said Cathy Zoi, chief executive officer, EVgo.
Nissan and EVgo will also join in a co-marketing program to help inform and raise awareness among U.S. EV drivers about the advantages of going electric; this will include highlighting the Nissan LEAF PLUS, which has a range up to 226 miles, fast-charging capability, and EVgo’s network of more than 1,200 public fast chargers across the country. Nissan has sold more than 400,000 LEAF vehicles worldwide.
