Nissan Introduces Quick EV Charger

Nissan Motor Co. announced today that it is commencing sales of Nissan-developed quick chargers through its regional parts sales affiliates in preparation for the December release of its Nissan LEAF, the all new zero emission car.

Nissan developed the quick charger in-house, applying its R&D expertise accumulated in development of EVs and related plant equipment which already installed its EV production plants. This gives the quick charger a competitive pricing advantage at the manufacturer's preferred price of 1.47 million yen.

Nissan plans to install 200-volt standard chargers at 2,200 Nissan dealers nationwide before December, 2010. In addition to that these quick chargers will be available at 200 selected dealers as well. For the convenience of Nissan LEAF drivers, at least one quick-charge unit will be available within a 40-kilometer radius throughout the country.
