EVgo and Nissan team up for new chargers
EVgo, which is responsible for one of the largest charging networks in the US, is extending their partnership with Nissan to install 200 DC fast chargers across the United States.
Nissan has set up the deal with an eye on ensuring that people who invest in Nissan’s new Leaf e+ ,which came onto the market earlier in 2019, are met with a strong charging infrastructure.
The 100-kilowatt fast chargers will feature both CHAdeMO and CCS connectors, which will make them compatible with a greater number of electric vehicles.
The two companies have been working together for the best part of six years, a relationship which has included the instillation of EV chargers along Interstate 9 which runs along the East Coast.
Nissan and Evgo have also built chargers in Monterey in California and at Lake Tahoe, installing nearly 2000 chargers across the US since 2010.
In 2018, Nissan and E.ON entered into a strategic partnership to provide electric vehicle charging and vehicle-to-grid (V2G) services.
The partnership, announced at the Geneva motor show, was developed to explore opportunities on pilot activities and commercial offers relating to EV charging, V2G and grid integration.
The two companies are also looking at decentralised energy generation initiatives and storage solutions across the European markets.
