BMW and Nissan partner to deploy dual fast chargers across the US

BMW and Nissan are partnering to offer public DC Fast charging at 120 locations across 19 states in an effort to support Nissan LEAF and BMW i3 customers and to promote increased adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) nationwide.

Each of these new locations will offer a dual 50 kW DC Fast-charging station with both CHAdeMO and CCS (Combo) connectors, serving owners of both Nissan LEAF and BMW i3 electric cars, as well as all EV drivers in the US whose vehicles are equipped with quick-charge ports. These 50 kW stations can charge EVs from Nissan and BMW up to 80% in about 20-30 minutes, as compared to the longer time required to recharge at a Level 2 (240V) charger, currently the most commonly available public charging station.

Drivers can easily locate the chargers with ConnectedDrive in the BMW i3—either using the in-vehicle Navigation or by using the BMW i Remote App—or via the Nissan EZ-Charge smartphone app. Additionally, these chargers are compatible with the Nissan EZ-Charge cards.

The fast chargers are available in California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, Nevada, New York, North and South Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.


No mention of who is making these chargers. Both Nissan and BMW manufacture chargers, but neither manufactures dual-standard chargers. Interesting.

Also no mention of where (what kind of locations) these fast chargers will be located. Strategically located shopping centers, or more Nissan and BMW dealerships?


This is great news! Now only if they do the same in more countries across the world so that more people can do their part with using electric cars and reducing their carbon footprint! I won't be surprised if more people come looking for car financing to purchase an electric vehicle for themselves once the stations are up!
