Nissan installs two EV fast charging stations in Michigan, US

Published 13 June 2017

Nissan has completed installing two new DC fast charge stations in Southeastern Michigan adding to the increasing infrastructure of electric vehicle fast chargers in the state.

The stations are located at USA 2 GO convenience stores in the towns of Novi and Howell, along the I-96 expressway, allowing for easy access to one of the state's busiest highways.

"Nissan is dedicated to building a convenient EV charging infrastructure across the US While it's not a priority for everyone, we firmly believe a robust infrastructure is key to the growth of EVs," said JeSean Hopkins, senior manager, EV infrastructure strategy & business development, Nissan North America. "Adding these fast chargers to Michigan's EV infrastructure will benefit all regional EV owners, regardless of make or model."

The two stations represent a more than 15% increase in Michigan's current fast-charge EV infrastructure. Each station, installed in collaboration with EVgo and GoSpace, includes both CHAdeMO and CCS DC fast-charging outlets so all EV owners have the ability to charge their vehicles.

Of the 15 DC fast chargers now on-line in the state, Nissan had a direct part in the installation of each one. Additionally, Nissan has played a part in the installation of 55% of all CHAdeMO fast-charge connections to date across the US, and recently announced the I-95 Fast-Charge ARC project that connects a 500-mile span between Boston and Washington D.C.

This expansion will allow EV owners a quick, safe and convenient place to charge their vehicles while traveling greater distances. Nissan is proud to reaffirm its commitment to public fast-charging infrastructure with these new locations in anticipation of the upcoming next-generation Nissan LEAF. The all-new LEAF will be unveiled globally in September.
