Nissan and BMW have joined forces to offer public fast charging at 120 locations across 19 states in an effort to support Nissan LEAF and BMW i3 customers and to promote increased adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) nationwide.
The breadth of the partners’ infrastructure build-out is expansive, with fast chargers now available in California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, Nevada, New York, North and South Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.
“Nissan takes a three-pronged approach to growing public EV charging options for LEAF drivers by installing quick chargers in the community, at corporate workplaces and at Nissan dealerships,” says Nissan’s Andrew Speaker. “By working with BMW to increase the number of available public quick-chargers, we are able to further enhance range confidence among EV drivers across the country.”
“This BMW-Nissan project builds on BMW’s ongoing commitment to participate in joint partnerships designed to expand DC fast charging options nationwide for all EV drivers,” adds BMW’s Cliff Fietzek.
Each of these new locations will offer a dual 50 kW fast-charging station with both CHAdeMO and SAE Combo connectors, serving EV drivers whose vehicles are equipped with quick-charge ports.
Drivers can locate the chargers with ConnectedDrive in the BMW i3 – either using the in-vehicle Navigation or by using the BMW i Remote App – or via the Nissan EZ-Charge smartphone app. Additionally, these chargers are compatible with the Nissan EZ-Charge cards.
