CHICAGO — Nissan North America Inc. and Car Charging Group Inc., which provides electric vehicle (EV) charging services, launched a joint initiative to expand the nationwide network of EV charging stations.

Car Charging and Nissan will work together to determine the placement of the chargers, targeting key markets throughout the United States by the end of 2013. Their first goal will be to install 48 Nissan-brand quick-charger stations in California and on the East Coast.

Nissan’s quick-charger stations can charge a fully depleted Nissan Leaf to 80 percent of capacity in about 30 minutes, the Franklin, Tenn.-based automaker said.

Meanwhile, Miami-based Car Charging will educate consumers about EV-charging infrastructure and the use of electric cars. Car Charging is also developing a mobile application to provide turn-by-turn directions to charging stations.

"Nissan’s commitment to expanding EV charging infrastructure—including quick chargers with businesses such as Car Charging—not only supports today’s Nissan Leaf and other EV drivers, but also helps prepare communities for the increasing use of EVs," Brendan Jones, Nissan’s director for EV infrastructure, said.
