Oh the irony.

Paz Oil Company has come to terms with Israel’s Renault-Nissan importer Carasso Motors.  Those terms lay out the groundwork for Paz to install nine CHAdeMO quick chargers at Paz gas station.

The first such station is already in the ground.  As Globes previously reported, “The first recharging station was inaugurated this week at the Paz gas station at Hasira Interchange in Herzliya.”

According to Globes:

“The universal battery recharging stations will serve the Nissan Leaf, which has been available in Israel for several months. Later, the stations will also serve other electric cars due to arrive in Israel. The stations can recharge a Nissan Leaf to 80% in 20 minutes, at a cost of NIS 15-20.”

Carasso Motors sells the LEAF for NIS 139,900 ($39,854 USD).  That price includes the battery pack and a home charger.

For those wondering where the additional CHAdeMO quick chargers will pop up in Israel, here’s what Globes says:

“The battery recharging stations will be installed at Paz gas stations along traffic arteries, including at Beit Yannai on Road 2 (the Coastal Highway), at Shoeva on Road 1 (the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv highway), Hasayarim on Road 4 (Geha) near Rishon LeZion, and at Beit Kama on Road 40 north of Beersheva.”

The secret behind this seemingly-contradictory involvement of oil companies in EV charging is that Israel’s oil companies do not have any drilling interest. They are just petroleum resellers. So they might as well diversify and start selling charge in their gas stations as well, at a minimal additional investment.

For Israeli EV drivers this sounds like a good deal, both the convenient location and the price (the equivalent of 2-3 litres of gas).

I love this, because it certainly makes sense to site fast chargers at gas stations. They are well located for auto travel, have off-street parking, probably have adequate electrical power, have general facilities advantageous to someone hanging around for half an hour (bathroom, snacks, bright lights), and also have air for tires and window washing squeegees. I would like to see fast chargers located at gas stations in the U.S., especially in urban areas.

This adds another dimension to Assaf’s “apparent contradiction” above: even though I drive electric, a gas-station is a place I’d actually like to stop at for a quick-charge.

Next up: have those stations list their kW*h price in the same large digits they use for litres/gallons of gas… That’d be pretty cool.

Murphy gas stations at some Wal-Marts in the US do have CHAdeMo chargers. It is just and experiment for now.
