chademoThe advent of electric cars has changed the world of automobiles, although there is no revolution going on just yet. Nissan’s LEAF is a decent ride where electric vehicles are concerned, but it seems that there is a whole lot more work that can be done on the existing infrastructure in order to ensure that electric vehicles would be convenient enough to drive around in. Quick chargers, for instance, would be useful to have around – and Nissan has plans to expand the number of its quick chargers throughout the US. In fact, there are around 800 quick chargers that comply with the CHAdeMO standard that are installed in the US, and by April 1, 2016 (no, this is no April Fool’s joke), the number of quick chargers is expected to hit 1,700 thereabouts.

As for some of the cities out there, they would include the likes of Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles and San Francisco where quick-charger availability is concerned. This would definitely go some way in encouraging the sales of the Nissan LEAF ride, and in the previous summer, we saw Nissan roll out its “No Charge to Charge” program which enabled new Leaf buyers to enjoy free charging at participating public charging stations – for up to two years, now how about that?
