Nissan to Accelerate EV Utilization Program at Roadside Stations in Japan
Nissan plans to provide a Nissan LEAF all-electric EV and LEAF to Home power supply system to roadside rest areas in all 47 prefectures of Japan
Donations will be used to provide power after natural disasters and enhance the daily lives of local residents
IRVINE, Calif. (September 2, 2013)-Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. plans to donate 47 Nissan LEAF all-electric zero-emission EVs and “LEAF-to-Home” power supply systems to roadside rest area stations in all of Japan’s 47 prefectures. The plan will begin in September 2013. One Nissan LEAF*, paired with a LEAF-to-Home power system, will be donated by Nissan to at least one roadside rest area (calledmichi-no-ekiin Japanese) to each prefecture in the country.

Electric vehicles can serve as portable sources of electrical power both in day-to-day living and during emergencies such as power blackouts following earthquakes or hurricanes. The Nissan LEAF, paired with the LEAF to Home power supply system, can be used as back-up power source in emergency situations if there are power outages and/or shortages by providing the stored electricity held in the Nissan LEAF’s onboard batteries. In normal situations, the LEAF to Home power supply system helps stabilize the electrical grid and balance energy needs by charging an EV with electricity generated during the night, when demand is low, or sourced from solar panels and supplying it to homes during daytime when demand is high.
