As part of the initiative, both the companies will join forces to determine the placement of the chargers in the region.

The initial goal for the initiative is to deploy the 48 Nissan-branded quick chargers primarily in California and on the East Coast.

Nissan noted that its quick charger stations reduce charging times, charging a fully depleted Nissan LEAF to 80% capacity in around 30 minutes.

The installation of EV quick chargers in key markets across the country will be completed by the end of 2013.

CarCharging CEO Michael D. Farkas said through the partnership with Nissan, the company is looking forward to expand the EV market by educating consumers.

Meanwhile, CarCharging is also developing a mobile application to provide real-time charging station location information with turn-by-turn directions and access capability for all CarCharging EV charging stations, including ChargePoint and Nissan’s quick chargers.
