Nissan dealerships in both Bakersfield and Stockton already have DCs.
And the two dealerships currently list 18 LEAFs in stock between them, so I would be surprised if they haven't sold hundreds of LEAFs already.
The major problem with DC charge siting in California is that the chargers have been irrationally placed, most of them poorly sited and crowded into the major population centers, rather than being sited along the major highways, where they are most useful.
Compare California DCs to Washington and Oregon, with fewer chargers, but far more functional DC infrastructure:
