Nissan set to boost electric vehicle infrastructure

Poor credit car finance customers may be interested to hear that Nissan has announced plans to join up with a number of leading utility and electrical vehicle supply equipment companies to boost the development of cheaper, smaller, quick electric car chargers.

The venture, which sees the car maker team up with Circutor, DBT, Efacec, Endesa and Siemens, aims to accelerate the installation of publicly-available Quick Charge (QC) points in Europe.

Nissan's involvement in the project is likely to see the cost of electrical units fall under €10,000, which it is hoped will lead to the widespread installation at service stations, car parks and retail outlets across Europe.

Toshiyuki Shiga, Nissan's chief operating officer, said the introduction of QCs across Europe will mean electric vehicle owners who need to drive long distance will be able to do so knowing they will be able to access charging points.

The Japanese manufacturer believes the venture will lead to thousands of QCs being made available for motorists across Europe by the end of 2012, and tens of thousands by 2015.

Bad credit car finance customers looking for environmentally-friendly vehicles have been able to get their hands on a Nissan LEAF since March 2011.
