Nissan is commencing sales of Nissan-developed quick chargers through its regional parts sales affiliates in preparation for the December release of its Nissan LEAF electric car.
Nissan developed the quick charger in-house, applying its R&D expertise accumulated in development of EVs and related plant equipment which already installed its EV production plants.
This gives the quick charger a competitive pricing advantage at the manufacturer’s preferred price of 1.47 million yen ($16,300).
Nissan plans to install 200-volt standard chargers at 2,200 Nissan dealers nationwide before December, 2010. In addition to that these quick chargers will be available at 200 selected dealers as well. For the convenience of Nissan LEAF drivers, at least one quick-charge unit will be available within a 40-kilometer radius throughout the country.
Nissan-made Quick Charger main features:
For safety, the charger maintains close communication with the vehicle, including various safety equipment like an anti-short-circuit monitor. Also it can be used under every climate.
2. Broad compatibility
The product follows the CHAdeMO protocol so it works not only with Nissan EVs but with those of other auto makers’ EVs as well.
3. Temperature durability
In addition to the standard model, Nissan offers variants for hot and cold climates.
4. Competitively priced
The equipment and high technology of Nissan plants eliminate waste in the production process and make the charger elegantly simple, allowing a very competitive price.
