USA: Nissan Boulder unveils faster e-car charger

BOULDER – Boulder Nissan is hosting a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, Jan. 16 to unveil a 480-volt DC fast-charging station, which will be able to give local electric-vehicle drivers of any brand car an 80 percent charge in about 30 minutes.

According to, a website that maps EV charging stations, Boulder Nissan’s new station is one of just five fast-charge stations along the Front Range. Nissan dealerships in Aurora and Fort Collins also have them, and there are two others in Fort Collins as well.

The ribbon cutting is at 9:30 a.m. at Boulder Nissan, 2285 28th St.

Boulder Nissan has three 240-volt stations that are free of charge to the public. But those, like most charging stations in Colorado, can take two to three hours to give the 80 percent charge, said Boulder Nissan sales associate Nigel Zeid. Boulder Nissan’s new 480-volt charger will be free to the public for a few months to help draw interest. After that, depending on the impact it has on the dealership’s electric bill, there might be a nominal charge.

“We’re not going to charge an exorbitant amount for it,” Zeid said.
