BMW and Nissan Team Up to Add 120 DC Fast Charging Locations

Need a charge? You will soon have access to 120 new DC Fast charging locations across 19 states as part of a partnership between BMW and Nissan.

The DC Fast charging network is now available in California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, Nevada, New York, North and South Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.

According to BMW, each location offers, “a dual 50 kW DC Fast-charging station with both CHAdeMO and CCS (Combo) connectors, serving… all EV drivers in the U.S. whose vehicles are equipped with quick-charge ports. These 50 kW stations can charge EVs from Nissan and BMW up to 80 percent in about 20-30 minutes, as compared to the longer time required to recharge at a Level 2 (240V) charger, currently the most commonly available public charging station.”

Need to find a spot to get charged? Drivers can locate chargers with ConnectedDrive in the BMW i3—either using the in-vehicle Navigation or by using the BMW i Remote App—or via the Nissan EZ-Charge smartphone app. Additionally, these chargers are compatible with the Nissan EZ-Charge cards.
