Nissan new quick charger for electric vehicles is nearly half the size of the current quick charger

The newly-developed Nissan quick charging unit retains the high performance of the current Nissan quick charger which is on sale with a suggested retail price of 1.47 million yen ($19,127), but is nearly half the size (by volume).The new charger unit’s smaller size will take up less space and enable easier installation. When it goes on sale, the new standard specification quick charger unit will be highly competitive and great value to customers because it will cost significantly less than one million yen ($13,000), while the base specification unit will cost only below one half the price of the current unit.

Nissan aims to sell 5,000 of the new quick chargers by the end of fiscal year 2015 (March 2016) to contribute to the ongoing development of the EV quick charging infrastructure in Japan. Nissan plans to install the new charging units at an increasing number of its dealerships nationwide. Preparations are also underway for future sales of the new quick charger in the US and in European markets.
