Re: Thread for suggested locations for Nissan Charge Stations?

It's kind of lame when you're on a road trip and you stop at a campground to charge off of 120V all night because there's no other place you can charge a Leaf and then come to find out there's a Tesla DCQC station in the same town.


it seems like an idea, at least to pay attention to where Tesla is putting stations, in coming up with ideas for where to put stations that might be helpful to Leaf drivers.

I don't have a good sense of whether, or to what extent, Nissan is paying attention to suggestions and needs from drivers.... and on charge stations, I have lost track of whether Nissan is very active these days as to trying to serve paying customers by judicious placement of, or support of placement of, stations.

Going back to some of the earlier conversations a few years ago.... as to stations located at the dealerships near me, they did not appear to respond to our points that if stations were to be located at dealerships and available to Leaf drivers (on the face of it, a good idea), then it would be useful if the stations were available 24x7x365, and not just during dealership hours. Maybe in some sense Nissan has addressed some of this by also collaborating with other charge station providers on separate projects.

I wish they would speak up about this either here or some other channel (e.g. EV press).

I stumbled across http://nissannews.com/en-US/nissan/usa/ ... ev-drivers from Jan 2017.

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

They certainly aren't paying attention to this thread!

Thanks, this is good information to go back and remember. If I take a fresh look and remind myself that Nissan is working in conjunction with EVgo, and consider that EVgo has in fact come into Tucson and helped to stabilize what was a clearly inadequate situation as to DC charging, then I'm quite glad to see that, and that's something to credit Nissan with.
