USA: Nissan Sets 1,500 – 2,000 DC Quick Charging Target For U.S. By 2014

When the Nissan Leaf launched in 2010, it came with an optional Chademo direct current (DC) quick charging port that could enable its 24 kilowatt-hour battery pack to recharge to 80 percent in under 30 minutes at compatible quick charge stations.

So far, there are only a handful of DC quick charging stations in the whole of the U.S., but Nissan has plans to change that, with a goal of selling up to 2,000 quick charging stations to the U.S. over the next two years.

Unveiled last year, Nissan’s range of DC charging stations are more than two-thirds cheaper and require one half of the physical space of previous generation DC chargers.

They even come with more options, allowing charging stations to be deployed everywhere from parking garages to street-side parking spaces in states that get extremely cold winter weather.

At $9,900, Nissan’s basic quick charge station is designed for indoor use, but comes with over 6 feet of cable — meaning it can serve not one but multiple parking spaces when sited correctly. More expensive options add touch-screen capabilities and heating to ensure that the charger operates correctly, regardless of the weather
