For all those EV drivers that are interested in knowing more about NISSAN DCQC's at local Colorado Nissan dealers listen up.........
Through careful and diligent research over the past 6 months, I've finally have the final information regarding the implementation of Nissan DCQC's in Colorado and other mountainous states in the US.
Basic Information for those who care-
Brand: Nissan NA
Manufacturer: Sumitomo Corp.
If you haven't already heard, Nissan of NA will be rolling out many Nissan branded DCQC's at Nissan dealers across the US this year. I believe Nissan is spending $150 million on the project.
Low and behold, Nissan dealers within The State of Colorado will NOT be seeing a single Nissan DCQC until further notice. Why? Well let's just say that Nissan and Sumitomo did not(for whatever reason) test/build Nissan branded DCQC's for high altitude service-yet. The Nissan chargers are only rated up to about 3200ft above sea level. I was told by Nissan NA-NTC back in October 2012 that a high altitude model is at least 6 months away. It is now May and they're still working on the high altitude version I assume. What a disgrace for ChaDeMo EV drivers in Colorado that wish to quick charge their vehicles.
