To promote the development of electric vehicles as a real alternative, apart from increasing the autonomy of the batteries must be able to upload as many locations as possible. With this objective Nissan plant to the press to ensure that it is actively involved in the development of new rapid charging points.

Overall, this is a donation of 43 computers fast charge to several operators to be installed in Madrid, Catalonia, Basque Country, Andalusia and Castile and Leon, communities where the brand has signed agreements with local dealers and has prepared for the sale of electric cars like the Nissan LEAF. These new points were installed mainly at gas stations will be located in strategic locations, especially in urban and output of large cities, to create the embryo of a future extensive capillary network and quickly load every 40 kilometers and offer customers more freedom and flexibility when traveling.

This will get a major boost to the sector and try to set a trend among manufacturers of electric vehicles as well as raise awareness of the viability of this alternative to diesel. In comments reported to Manuel de la Guardia, Managing Director of Nissan Iberia:

Although the autonomy of 175 km of LEAF Nissan is sufficient for most daily trips usually make 80% of the population, the extent of the fast charge networks will allow drivers to cover longer distances in a single day.

If we have a significant number of fast chargers in Spain, owners of electric vehicles can be recharged in no time your car no matter the destination. This will be essential to mass adoption of electric cars.

But not enough, because even then, it will take 30 minutes to recharge to 80% of the battery. Too long compared with the 4 minutes it might take to fill the gas tank. All this is telling you to travel 400 kilometers, would be stopped at least 3 times if we use a vehicle like the LEAF has 175 km of autonomy.

This in Spain, but the rest of Europe, Nissan maintains the same commitment to our country and has already announced in November 2011 that is accelerating its plans for the European network of electric vehicle fast charge, and will begin delivering 400 new stations fast charge, at no cost to operators with electric vehicle charging.

These chargers are compatible with much of the electricity sector. CHAdeMO-use standard or Load to Move, which was set by Nissan, Toyota, Mitsubishi and Fuji Heavy Industries. Thus, rapid chargers can also be used Nissan cars by Mitsubishi, Citroen, Peugeot and Renault, apart of course, Nissan.
