Nissan and EVgo are expanding the charging network with the installation of 200 direct current fast chargers (DCFC) throughout the country. Every DCFC is capable of providing 100kW and has both CHAdeMO and CCS connectors.
"Nissan is proud to have partnered with EVgo to build the largest public EV fast charging network in the U.S.," said Aditya Jairaj, director of EV Sales and Marketing at Nissan North America Inc. "Given the tremendous driver response to the 2019 long-range1 all-electric LEAF, Nissan and EVgo will accelerate fast charging by committing to a multi-year charger construction program that will continue to expand fast-charging options for EV drivers across the country."
The partnership between these companies has resulted in the installation of over 2,000 quick charge connectors throughout the United States since 2010. Additionally, EVgo and Nissan will be collaborating in a co-marketing program in an effort to educate U.S. EV drivers about the benefits of going electric.
"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, CEO at EVgo. "This new phase of our partnership means that EVgo and Nissan will continue to lead in enabling more American drivers to take advantage of the benefits of electric vehicles."
