Nissan, like most automakers, has an incentive to make charging easier.

Partnering with EVGo, the Japanese brand looks to support sales of its new Leaf E+. Consequently, the six-year partnership between EVGo and Nissan is more important than ever.

Moreover, E+ drivers will rely heavily on fast chargers. The 2019 EV travels just 226 miles on a single charge.

Nevertheless, there shouldn’t be cause for range anxiety among Nissan drivers. Slow-charging is becoming a viable option. Granted, charging at home takes a while.

However, EV owners can treat EVs like phones. While the new fast chargers offered by EVGo are great, there isn’t a pressing need to leave the house to fuel up. Just like your iPhone, overnight charging will suffice.
