This is the way to get EVs launched. A dedicated quick charge network, and a network of dedicated professionals to make sure that the customers have a great experience, and promote the car. Imagine if Nissan had a select group ofdealers ddedicated to the LEAF with folks that knew the car inside and out., with 440 quick chargers at each location... I bet the LEAF would be selling 4x as well. Instead we have cars with batteries dying and no support available.

The live reveal is tonight starting at 8:00pm. Just about now.

I agree with the second to last post. Nissan has dropped the ball so far by not helping to build out a quick charge network.

The transformer is 500kVA. :shock: Wonder if Solar City would do a "power purchase agreement" for a CHAdeMO charger. :lol:

But apparently Nissan is now going to install 100 QCs in the Bay Area starting Oct. 2012 per posting on the topic "SF Bay Area QC--getting them sooner rather than later" (someone, put in the link). Let's hope that is not vaporware like the $9900 QC. (Nissan, you are such a tease!)

But my loyalties are still with Nissan since they have put out an affordable EV.

Wow, that would be sweet. That would be the game changer we are all waiting for.

Thanks for sharing this pic, this looks awesome. The livestream is not working yet :(
They need to use a google+ hangout next time.
