Nissan and BMW have partnered to offer public fast charging at 120 locations across 19 U.S. states. These 50 kW stations can charge electric vehicles such as the Nissan LEAF and BMW i3 up to 80% in about 20-30 minutes, as compared to the longer time required to recharge at a Level 2 (240V) charger.
The fact that they offer both CHAdeMO and SAE Combo connectors means they can serve all EV drivers whose vehicles are equipped with quick-charge ports.
Nissan and BMW joined forces to promote increased adoption of EVs across the country.
Drivers can easily locate the chargers with ConnectedDrive in the BMW i3 — either using the in-vehicle navigation system or by using the BMW i Remote App — or via the Nissan EZ-Charge smartphone app.
If you plan a trip to the U.S. in the near future, these are the states that will have fast chargers available: California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, Nevada, New York, North and South Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
