Nissan building nationwide electric car fast charging network in 18 months

Nissan has announced plans to build a nationwide network of over electric car fast charging stations, placing the stations at dealerships and other locations, starting by collaborating with eVgo in the Washington DC area to build the first fast charging network in the Northeast.

Nissan is looking to triple the size of the electric car fast charging infrastructure in the U.S. The plan is to deploy at least 500 fast charging stations across the U.S. over the next eighteen months. The announcement came on Wednesday at the Washington DC Auto Show, and part of the plan is to build the first fast-charge network in the Washington DC area in partnership with NRG’s eVgo subsidiary.

Nissan estimates the U.S. currently has about 160 fast charging stations, none of which are in the Washington DC area. They note that most people are relying on home charging using level 2 charging stations. Fast charging on a Nissan Leaf does an 80 percent recharge in about 30 minutes. Fast charging is more useful for charging in public than is level 2 charging, because of the relative time requirements. Deploying at least 500 fast charging stations will, by itself, triple the current fast charging infrastructure.
