Nissan and BMW will offer public charging at 120 locations across 19 states in an partnership to support charging for Nissan LEAF and BMW i3 customers, and promote increased adoption of electric vehicles (EVs).
Each of the new charging locations will provide a dual 50-kilowatt fast-charging station with both CHAdeMO and SAE Combo connectors, serving owners of both Nissan LEAF and BMW i3 electric cars, as well as all EV drivers in the U.S. whose vehicles are equipped with quick-charge ports. These 50-kilowatt stations can charge EVs from Nissan and BMW up to 80% in up to 30 minutes, as compared to the longer time required to charge at a Level 2 (240-volt) charger.
Drivers can locate the chargers with ConnectedDrive in the BMW i3 by using the in-vehicle navigation, BMW i Remote app, or via the Nissan EZ-Charge smartphone app. These chargers are also compatible with Nissan EZ-Charge cards.
