Nissan Quick Charging Electric Vehicle

The units, which use the CHAdeMO standard, can charge the vehicle from depleted to about 80 percent in about 30 minutes.

Brendan Jones, director of Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Strategy, Nissan said: Nissan is undertaking a proactive, multi-pronged approach to expand charging infrastructure to enhance awareness of electric cars like the LEAF and instill range confidence in potential customers. We know that available charging infrastructure opens the doors for more Nissan LEAF sales.

This quick charging initiative follows a 24-dealer pilot program, which Nissan rolled out at dealerships in the markets of San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento and Seattle. During the pilot, Nissan has been able to study the frequency of use for the chargers and the impact that charging has on the dealer s operations.

We are located at the intersection of two of the country s busiest freeways, so having a quick charger available for the thousands of commuters who drive by us every day is a boon for business, said Richard Luengo, general manager, Nissan of Downtown Los Angeles, which is averaging about 10 charging sessions per day at its quick charger. There is a steady stream of folks using the charger, and we ve generated significant good will in the LEAF community. Over the past four months, our dealership has seen a marked improvement in sales, and some of that is clearly attributable to the new quick charger.

So far, the active chargers in the program have been popular. Since the pilot began, about 5,600 charging sessions have taken place, with each location averaging about 4.5 sessions per day. That figure has been steadily on the rise as awareness has increased.

Over the period of June 21-July 1, the number of charging sessions increased about 12.5 percent compared to the previous two-week period.

Installation of new chargers will begin in east coast markets, starting this summer. By April 1, 2014, Nissan expects to have quick chargers installed and operational at 100 additional dealerships.

Nissan s charging partner AeroVironment will supply the quick chargers and will provide installation services for nearly all of the new quick charging units.

Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. Japan s second-largest automotive company, is headquartered in Yokohama, Japan, and is part of the Renault-Nissan Alliance.

Operating with more than 267,000 employees globally, Nissan sold more than 4.9 million vehicles and generated revenue of 9.6 trillion yen (USD 116.16 billion) in fiscal 2012. Nissan delivers a comprehensive range of over 60 models under the Nissan and Infiniti brands. In 2010, Nissan introduced the Nissan LEAF, and continues to lead in zero-emission mobility.

The LEAF, the first mass-market, pure-electric vehicle launched globally, is now the best-selling EV in history.
