Schneider Electric partners with Jet Charge to electrify Nissan dealers in lead-up to Leaf launch

#1

Schneider Electric has announced a tie-up to supply Australia’s biggest electric vehicle charging infrastructure installer JET Charge with charging equipment for car dealer Nissan Australia.

Charging stations will be installed at 89 metropolitan and provincial Nissan dealers before the arrival of the new Nissan LEAF model in August, creating Australia’s biggest EV sales network, Schneider Electric and JET said in a statement.

Charging stations for the home will be installable by JET Charge for private buyers of the Nissan LEAF. The statement said internal Nissan research had shown that most LEAF owners charged their cars as they did their mobile phones – overnight at home. While retail sales of EVs were low right now, the statement said a spike in sales was expected over the next 5 to 10 years.
