10,000 Aerovironment chargers for electric cars have been installed in the US so far, and more may soon be installed at U.S. Fiat Studios.

There are many at BMW dealers that offered the ActiveE, and at Nissan dealers.

Even though Aerovironment is Nissan’s preferred charging station vendor, Nissan can still choose other charger brands.

Nissan Leaf owners can purchase 44 kW DC fast chargers for under $20,000, which is terribly expensive, and is unnecessary if they plug in to a 240 volt outlet overnight (since a 240 volt, 13 amp outlet can charge it in 7.7 hours).

More information pertaining to the Fiat deal will surface later, possibly at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show, where the all-electric Fiat 500E will be presented.
