DC Fast Chargers To Triple In The US, Thanks To Nissan

Nissan intends to make a green statement in the US just as they did in Europe, having set up DC fast charging stations all over the place in strategic locations in order to ensure that Nissan Leaf owners will not have to worry about their rides running out of juice unexpectedly. At the Washington Auto Show, Nissan announced that they will be collaborating with eVgo in order to install another 40 Freedom Stations to the DC area, and an additional 500 quick charge stations in the US before 2014 comes to an end.

It might not sound like much, but 500 new DC fast chargers Stateside would translate to roughly a three-fold increase, considering the fact that at this point in time, there are only approximately 160 of such charge stations that have been installed and see action, with nary a single one being made available in the Washington DC area, according to the folks over at Nissan. The Nissan fast charger is said to be able to fill up a Leaf to approximately 80% full in under half an hour, translating it to another 60 miles or so on the road.
