Nissan and EVgo have been working together to provide reliable, accessible charging stations across America. Recently, the companies announced that they were adding 200 direct current fast chargers to make charging easier and more convenient.
Nissan and EVgo have had a 6-year partnership, so it makes sense that they are coming together for this joint investment. Since 2010, Nissan has installed over 2,000 quick charge connectors in the U.S. Currently, over 100 million Americans could drive from where they live to an EVgo fast charger within just 15 minutes.
EVgo and Nissan are also working together to inform American drivers about all the positives that come as a result of driving an electric vehicle. They are raising awareness with a co-marketing program that specifically showcases the Nissan LEAF® PLUS, which provides a range of up to 226 miles.*
In addition to highlighting the Nissan LEAF® PLUS, the co-marketing program will also showcase the over 1,200 public fast chargers in the EVgo network along with the fast-charging capability.
We at Pischke Motors Nissan are excited for more chargers to be added and for owning an electric vehicle to be even more convenient. Take a test drive in the Nissan LEAF® and learn about the benefits of electric vehicles.
* Does not apply to all LEAF models. EPA range estimate up to 226 miles for 2019 LEAF PLUS S only. As shown, 2019 LEAF [SL/SV] PLUS EPA range estimate 215 miles. Actual range will vary within trim levels, options, and driving conditions; see Customer Disclosure Form for details.
In Europe, Nissan has been introducing various electric vehicles as it ramps up toward an EV-dominated future. Although the same vehicles haven’t been announced for the U.S., the Nissan lineup does include the LEAF, which is a great eco-friendly option for drivers in the states.
The Nissan LEAF has long been a popular all-electric vehicle in the U.S., and it indicates the brand’s commitment to electrification in its lineup. As is evident of this commitment, Gareth Dunsmore, the electric vehicle director for Nissan Europe, announced that the European portfolio of EVs would broaden. Some of the new vehicles in that portfolio will be entirely electric, while others will utilize e-power technology.
E-power vehicles use a small internal combustion engine to charge the battery pack, eliminating any fears over range. The fuel-efficient Note e-power model has already found success in Japan, so it stands to reason that similar vehicles may do well in Europe.
In 2020, the Nissan IMx concept crossover is also set to hit certain markets in 2020. This coincides with the plan for Nissan to have pure electric vehicles. As stated by Dunsmore, EV-modifiable internal combustion engine platforms and bespoke EV platforms are also going to be created.
There are still many unknown details about the new vehicles, such as if they will be coming to the U.S. However, it’s clear that electrification is important to Nissan and its future strategy.
We at Pischke Nissan love how committed Nissan is to protecting the environment. Come take a test drive at our dealership and see all that our vehicles have to offer.
