A Washington state Nissan dealer has opened a fast-charging depot with six stations that makes it the largest group of fast chargers at any dealership in the U.S., Nissan reported.
Gov. Jay Inslee officially opened an electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging depot at Bellevue Nissan, formerly Nissan of the Eastside at Bellevue. The dealership is one of the nation’s top-selling Nissan LEAF dealers, the automaker said.
With support from Nissan and NRG eVgo, the six fast chargers can charge a 100-percent, all-electric LEAF from depleted to 80 percent full in less than 30 minutes, according to Nissan. The chargers will be available 24 hours a day.
The new chargers will be networked by NRG eVgo, a nationwide provider of EV quick charging, and they will be accessible using the all-access EZ-Charge Card. They will be included in Nissan’s No Charge to Charge program, which offers two years of no-cost public charging at select local stations with the purchase or lease of a new LEAF.
