Nissan and Sumitomo to collaborate in the US on DC quick charger sales

Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. and Sumitomo Corporation have agreed to collaborate on sales and marketing activities in the US market for the new DC Quick Charger. (Earlier post.)

The newly-developed DC quick charging unit retains the high performance of the current quick charger manufactured by Nissan, but is nearly half its size by volume. As the new charger unit is much smaller in size, it will occupy less space and enable easier installation. Furthermore, when it is introduced to the market, the new unit is expected to cost significantly less than the current model.

Nissan North America Co. and Sumitomo Corporation of America are jointly working on a sales and marketing plan for the product. Details of the plan will be announced in the near future.

Nissan recently announced that it is accelerating plans for a European-wide Quick Charge (QC) network for electric vehicles by giving 400 new quick charging stations free of charge to EV charging operators. (Earlier post.)



This is one area where governments should be more pro-active. Many current gas stations could be retrofitted and become high speed charge stations. USA need 50,000+ high speed public charge stations.
