BMW, Nissan Team Up to Deploy Dual Fast Chargers Across US

BMW and Nissan have teamed up to deploy dual fast chargers across the U.S. to benefit all electric vehicle drivers.

A total of 120 dual-port 50-kW DC fast-charging stations have been installed across 19 states, helping support longer distance EV travel for Nissan Leaf and BMW i3 owners. Those fast chargers are now available in the following states: California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, Nevada, New York, North and South Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.

Not only do these new chargers benefit Nissan Leaf and BMW i3 owners across the nation, they can also be used by any electric vehicle equipped with quick-charge ports. The new locations offer a dual 50-kW DC fast-charging station with both CHAdeMO and CCS (Combo) connectors.

Drivers can easily locate the chargers with ConnectedDrive on the BMW i3 or through the Nissan EZ-Charge smartphone app. The chargers are also compatible with the Nissan EZ-Charge cards.

“Nissan takes a three-pronged approach to growing public EV charging options for LEAF drivers by installing quick chargers in the community, at corporate workplaces and at Nissan dealerships,” said Andrew Speaker, Nissan’s director of Electric Vehicle Sales and Marketing. “By working with BMW to increase the number of available public quick-chargers, we are able to further enhance range confidence among EV drivers across the country.”
