In-Charge Energy providing chargers for Nissan dealerships

The upgraded chargers are part of the preparations for the new 2022 Nissan Ariya electric crossover, rolling out later this year.

In-Charge Energy is working with Nissan North America to install charging hardware and software at more than 500 dealerships across the U.S. The upgraded chargers are part of the preparations for the new 2022 Nissan Ariya electric crossover, rolling out later this year.

The Ariya will be equipped with CCS-format DC fast charging, rather than the CHAdeMo-format charging that has been used in the Nissan Leaf EV since 2010. In-Charge says it has been working with Nissan to identify and swap dealers’ CHAdeMo-compliant fast chargers with newer 50 kW fast chargers from ABB that can charge Nissan’s older EVs as well as the new Ariya.

In addition to the sweeping charging hardware upgrades across the country, Nissan has opted to deploy In-Charge Energy’s software platform, In-Control. In-Control allows users to digitally operate, monitor and maintain individual chargers throughout a charger’s life cycle. In-Control also allows dealers to pull reports for carbon-emission tax credit opportunities, In-Charge Energy says

The hardware installations and additional infrastructure upgrades at Nissan’s dealerships are expected to be complete by the end of 2021.
