Each of the new stations will be equipped with both CHAdeMO and CCS charging adapters to support the widest range of electric vehicles capable of fast charging.

“EVgo is thrilled to expand our six-year partnership with Nissan to provide convenient and reliable fast charging to all EV drivers, including the Nissan LEAF, on the nation’s largest and most reliable public network,” said Cathy Zoi, chief executive officer, EVgo. “This new phase of our partnership means that EVgo and Nissan will continue to lead in enabling more American drivers to take advantage of the benefits of electric vehicles.”

The expanded partnership increases Nissan’s expenditure on EV charging infrastructure to $60 million dollars for stations that benefit far more than just Nissan drivers. Since 2010, Nissan has installed more than 2,000 quick charge connectors around the country, providing the foundational charging infrastructure for many early adopters of electric vehicles capable of utilizing fast charging stations.

“Given the tremendous driver response to the 2019 long-range all-electric LEAF, Nissan and EVgo will accelerate fast charging by committing to a multi-year charger construction program that will continues to expand fast-charging options for EV drivers across the country,” Aditya Jairaj, director, EV Sales and Marketing, Nissan North America, Inc said.

EVgo has been on a tear to continue building out its fast charging network, recently completing the installation of the last fast charger in the current scope of the DRIVEtheARC corridor that runs through the heartland of California. Currently, EVgo has stations within 15 minutes of the homes of more than 100 million Americans and this new deal with Nissan will only continue to improve that coverage.

The installation of the new chargers will be supported by an educational marketing campaign led by the two companies to raise awareness of EV owners as to the capability of both modern electric vehicles like Nissan’s 226-mile range LEAF PLUS and the current generation of EVgo’s fast chargers. It takes two to tango and this pair of companies has joined back up for for another round on the dance floor.
