Nissan, BMW, & Greenlots Together Roll Out 120 New EV Fast-Charging Stations

Originally published on EV Obsession.

Two of the top electric vehicle manufacturers out there currently, Nissan and BMW, have partnered to further develop charging infrastructure in the US, according to a recent press release.

The partnership has already partnered on 120 new dual-port 50-kilowatt (kW) DC fast-charging stations, implemented in 19 different states. All of these are Greenlots-networked charging stations featuring both CHAdeMO and CCS (SAE Combo) connectors.

The new electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging stations were installed in the states of: New York, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Ohio, New Mexico, Maryland, California, Connecticut, Nevada, Wisconsin, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.

“BMW continues to pursue new ways to support the development of a robust public charging infrastructure that will benefit current and future BMW i3 owners across the country. This BMW-Nissan project builds on BMW’s ongoing commitment to participate in joint partnerships designed to expand DC fast charging options nationwide for all EV drivers,” stated Cliff Fietzek, Manager Connected eMobility, BMW of North America. “Together with Nissan, we are focused on facilitating longer distance travel so that even more drivers will choose to experience the convenience of e-mobility for themselves.”

“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,” stated 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.”

The new fast chargers can be easily located with either the “ConnectedDrive” interface in the BMW i3 or the Nissan EZ-Charge smartphone app. As one would expect, the new fast chargers can be accessed with Nissan EZ-Charge cards (amongst other options).
