Last week California announced a $120 million investment to install 10,000 charging stations throughout the state. The electric expressway will be built by NRG Energy Inc and will include 200 fast-charging stations, and 10,000 plug-in units at 1,000 locations.
“Nissan applauds California Governor Brown’s clear vision and strong commitment to electric vehicles through the $120 million investment for the creation of the Electric Expressway. California is leading the way in fostering the growth of electric cars, such as the zero-emissions Nissan LEAF. More than 40 percent of the 11,000 LEAFs sold in the United States are on the roads in California. Today’s landmark commitment, which will bring more than 10,000 electric-vehicle charging points to the state, paves the way for widespread adoption of this critical technology.”
