Nissan and EVgo are expanding the charging network for EV drivers with the installation of 200 direct current fast chargers (DCFC) across the United States.

Each of the new fast-chargers is capable of delivering 100kW and have both CHAdeMO and CCS connectors so more EV drivers can benefit.

“Given the tremendous driver response to the 2019 long-range1all-electric LEAF, Nissan and EVgo will accelerate fast charging by committing to a multi-year charger construction program that will continue to expand fast-charging options for EV drivers across the country”, said Aditya Jairaj, director, EV Sales and Marketing, Nissan North America, Inc.

The joint investment by Nissan and EVgo expands on a six-year partnership between two leaders in transportation electrification in the U.S. Nissan has installed more than 2,000 quick charge connectors across the country since 2010.

More than 100 million Americans currently live within a 15-minute drive of an EVgo fast charger, including those built in partnership with Nissan along the I-95 corridor on the East Coast, the DRIVEtheARC corridor in California from Monterey to Lake Tahoe.

“EVgo is thrilled to expand our six-year partnership with Nissan to provide convenient and reliable fast charging to EV drivers on the nation’s largest and most reliable public network,” said Cathy Zoi, chief executive officer, EVgo.

Nissan and EVgo will also join forces in a co-marketing program to help inform and raise awareness among U.S. EV drivers about the advantages of going electric.
