Nissan offers dual-standard capability in German DC fast charging network

Nissan has partnered with the Berlin-based electrical infrastructure provider Omexom to deploy a network of 100 DC rapid chargers across Germany. Omexom will be the project manager for the network roll-out. Charger locations will include dealers, fleet customers and real estate developments.

Similar announcements are common enough these days, as the Japanese automaker aggressively expands its empire of CHAdeMO-compatible fast chargers in Europe. What’s interesting about the latest news is that these stations will be capable of adding dual-standard compatibility. According to Nissan, a CCS cable, as well as Type 2 AC charging, can be added if desired.

“We are convinced that DC fast charging stations should be available for all electric vehicles,” said Joachim Kopf, Nissan’s EV Manager for Germany, Austria and Switzerland. “Therefore, our Quick-Charger can also be ordered with CCS and 43 kW AC connections. And, despite this, our fast-charging standard CHAdeMO is currently the best-selling in the country.”
