Nissan Opens First EV Quick Charging Station in Mexico

November 19, 2012

Nissan opens the first public electric vehicle quick-charging station in Latin America on Nov. 16 adding another place to charge to Nissan’s network of over 1,000 charging stations worldwide.

Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Nissan, said that the launch represents a great partnership of public and private interests toward a zero emission future.

“We take seriously our role in developing public-private alliances to create adequate conditions for zero emissions mobility. Since we established our commitment to a zero emissions future for transportation, we have sold more than 50,000 Nissan LEAF electric vehicles in over 100 countries and placed more than 1,000 charging stations worldwide,” said Carlos Ghosn.

The quick charging station located in Colonia Roma, a neighborhood on the outskirts of Mexico City, will charge vehicles’ batteries to 80% in an average of 30 minutes.

Nissan’s goal is to place 3 public charging stations in Mexico City, eight in Aguascalientes and other 50 locations, including Nissan’s corporate offices and three dealers’ facilities. Two Nissan dealers in México City and one in Aguascalientes already are certified to service Nissan LEAF electric vehicles.

Jose Luis Valls, president and managing director of Nissan Mexico, said Nissan is leading the path toward zero emissions with its commitment to providing charging stations in Latin America.

“No other car company is demonstrating the level of commitment that Nissan has to zero emissions mobility. We do not plan to stop here. Our intention is to donate six additional charging stations in other cities around the country, helping to build EV charging station corridors that complement existing infrastructure and the resources available at users’ homes,” said Jose Luis Valls.
