Nissan Unveils Rapid EV Charger That's Half Its Original Version


A new rapid EV charger from Nissan will be made available starting this November in Japan. It will have the same capacity as their current version, but its size will be half of that.

In more details, the charger will have a maximum output voltage of 500 volts DC, a maximum current of 125A. Its sizes have been reduced to 1,840 x 380 x 665 mm.

The price is not to be ignored, since it rivals the one of a normal petrol-powered car, in each of its three models: base, standard and cold-region, $12,982 (for the standard version).

European countries and the U.S. will be among the first to see Nissan’s new small fast charger, where it aims to sell about 5,000 units by 2015.

What can I say? Although I like the idea of rapidly charging my (future) EV, the price of the charger is highly prohibitive. At least for my types, I guess. I mean, if you only want to save on fuel, this is definitely not the solution.
