(FRANKLIN, TN) -- Select Nissan dealerships across the country will soon be among the first in the nation to add electric vehicle (EV) charging stations to dealership operations.
This new feature will be available for new owners of the Nissan LEAF, which is set to roll out in select U.S. markets beginning in December. Nissan is preparing to open EV charging stations at more than 150 dealerships in target markets in California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, and Tennessee by January 2011.
"We're proud to have strong partners in our dealer group who, like Nissan, are investing in affordable, sustainable mobility," said Brian Carolin, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Nissan North America.
Twenty thousand U.S. consumers have already reserved the Nissan LEAF since reservations opened April 20.
