BMW and Nissan team up to expand U.S. EV charging network

Owners of BMW electric and plug-in hybrid cars and Nissan EVs will soon be able to take advantage of an expanded network of fast charging stations in the U.S.

The two car manufacturers have got together and announced they are backing the expansion of the EVgo electric car charging network.

The support of BMW and Nissan will see EVgo expand its existing network of 668 fast charging stations by adding another 174 locations in 33 states.

Over 50 of those stations are planned to be installed this year.

The dual-port DC Fast charging stations can provide up to an 80% charge to electric vehicles like the BMW i3 and Nissan LEAF in just 25 minutes.

BMW and Nissan team up to expand U.S. EV charging network“EVgo is delighted to expand our partnership with BMW and Nissan,” says Rob Barrosa, Vice President of EVgo.

“We are constantly looking at strategic ways to expand our network and promote EV adoption to help make every day EV use a reality for our OEM partners and their vehicle owners.”

While Robert Healey, Head of EV Infrastructure for BMW of North America, says the expansion of the charging infrastructure will give more drivers the confidence to choose an electric vehicle.

“BMW’s continuing collaborations with Nissan and EVgo, further demonstrate the company’s commitment to building a robust public charging infrastructure across the country.

“We recognized early on that meaningful partnerships like this would be essential in order to support the expansion of convenient and accessible electric vehicle charging options.”
