I meant partner up like tesla, not with them (although that would work too). http://insideevs.com/tech-crunch-what-i ... r-partner/evnow wrote:A good way to compare super charger & CHAdeMO is IPhone vs Android.minispeed wrote:I know Ghosh doesn't buy into it which is why I think that Nissan won't do it first, but for him to truely support growth he's got to then buy into charging. IE Nissan USA/Canada tell dealers you have to give us space to operate and maintain our quick chargers on your property with 24/7 access and if you park your dealer cars there we will fine you. They then have to have a team that will fix quick chargers within a day. They can partner up like Tesla has and put them at non dealers too. The REx makes the home charger the only one you "need". All the others are a bonus.
Proprietary, better quality control on Superchargers (iPhone). Open & lower reliability of individual chargers on CHAdeMO (Android). But, if CHAdeMO becomes ubiquitous - that can trump proprietary network and build reliability based on redundancy.
The same way, gas stations have become now.
BTW, what you re suggesting Nissan should do is illegal in the US (most states).
There's no reason they can't push Nissan branded owned chamedo's out strategically where needed. After all android is open but there's still a nexus line.
And I doubt the Nissan run service for chargers would be illegal and that's the most important one.
