Firstly hello from a newbie from the U.K!, South Yorkshire to be exact.
We all know about level 1, 2 and 3 charging and the compatability with the leaf.
However the large japanese steel manufacturer and general engineering conglomerate, JFE engineering are reportedly releasing their $60,000 fast charger in march 2011. The statements and reports from JFE stated a 3 minute 50% charge and a 5 minute 70% charge from zero.
Firstly, have Nissan or JFE tested this on the leaf and have they worked together in anyway?
What kind of damage if any would fast charging like this cause?
Is $60,000 too much for one charger?
what price would you pay for the privelage to charge in 3 minutes?
How much is a typical new petrol pump installation? In other words, would it be viable for petrol stations due to the 3 minute time frame?
