Nissan + DBT, Emmy, Istanbul, PonyCar, California.

Nissan upgrades to 150 kW charging in Europe together with infrastructure partner DBT. The French company has installed more than 2,100 quick charging stations in 36 European countries since 2013 and now received an order from Nissan to prepare these stops for 150 kW charging capacity. Additionally, DBT will deliver its fast-charging stations with both CCS and CHAdeMO standard as announced earlier, and first deliveries are set for September. Nissan’s new found focus on 150 kW has obviously to do with the upcoming Nissan Leaf although its charging capacity remains undeclared. Furthermore, the CHAdeMO association recently announced to get its infrastructure network ready to charge with up to 150 kW, following similar preparatory moves made by CCS initiative CharIN.
