Nissan provides free quick charging for Californian EV drivers
Adopt a Charger allows organisations and individuals to ‘adopt’ charging posts, providing funding for installation and maintenance. Nissan will fund three Aerovironment Level 2 units at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and an additional four Level 2 and eight Level 1 posts at Golden Gate Park.
Jon Brancheau, vice president Nissan marketing, said: ‘Working with Adopt a Charger, we're providing this community service in an effort to increase electric vehicle acceptance and make ownership more convenient by helping ensure chargers are available in high-traffic areas
‘Nissan's commitment to zero emissions goes beyond the LEAF; we want to help transform global societies to adapt zero emissions vehicles as a way to address environmental concerns and promote energy independence.’
California is a key electric vehicle market – 9% of new car purchases in Los Angeles are expected to be electric vehicles by 2015.
