Nissan Adds Fast Chargers In Michigan, Bringing State Total Up To Just 15 – Ouch
Nissan has completed the installation of two new DC fast charging stations in Southeastern Michigan, increasing the total number in the state to 15. Such progress.
The new stations are located at USA 2 GO convenience stores in the towns of Novi and Howell, along the I-96 expressway.
As in case of other projects (see ‘I-95 Fast-Charge ARC’ Between Boston, Washington D.C.), Nissan is now thankfully being proactive, and adding double-head chargers (CHAdeMO and CCS Combo) – which is kinda swell all things considered.
Nissan also boasted that so far it has played a part in the installation of a massive 55% of all CHAdeMO chargers in the U.S.
“The two stations represent a more than 15 percent increase in Michigan’s current fast-charge EV infrastructure. Each station, installed in collaboration with EVgo and GoSpace, includes both CHAdeMO and CCS DC fast-charging outlets so all EV owners have the ability to charge their vehicles. Of the 15 DC fast chargers now on-line in the state, Nissan had a direct part in the installation of each one. Additionally, Nissan has played a part in the installation of 55 percent of all CHAdeMO fast-charge connections to date across the U.S., and recently announced the I-95 Fast-Charge ARC project that connects a 500-mile span between Boston and Washington D.C.
This expansion will allow EV owners a quick, safe and convenient place to charge their vehicles while traveling greater distances. Nissan is proud to reaffirm its commitment to public fast-charging infrastructure with these new locations in anticipation of the upcoming next-generation Nissan LEAF. The all-new LEAF will be unveiled globally in September.”
JeSean Hopkins, senior manager, EV infrastructure strategy & business development, Nissan North America said:
“Nissan is dedicated to building a convenient EV charging infrastructure across the U.S. While it’s not a priority for everyone, we firmly believe a robust infrastructure is key to the growth of EVs. Adding these fast chargers to Michigan’s EV infrastructure will benefit all regional EV owners, regardless of make or model.”
