Nissan have promised to subsidize the installation of over 100 quick charging stations at Nissan dealers. They have been fairly coy as to which cities they are targeting with this initiative. A pilot study was undertaken in California where 27 quick charging stations were installed.
Now we have our first dealer quick charge station in Tennessee at Cool Springs. On one hand this is very good news that Tennessee is a target market for this initiative. I look forward to seeing more of these units go into the ground over the next few months. However the location of this dealer is within 5-10 miles of three other quick charge stations at Nissan HQ and a Mapco Gas station. It would be nice to see the dealer quick chargers located in areas where quick charging is currently unavailable. North and West of Nashville could both benefit from well placed quick charging stations. Here’s hoping for more of these units in Tennessee.
