Nissan North America and the City of San Francisco will develop an electric vehicle (EV) charging network in the nine-county Bay Area region. The cities of Oakland and San Jose, county governments in the Bay Area and other public and private stakeholders also are part of the Bay Area EV Corridor program.
As part of the collaboration, Nissan said it has committed to making the Nissan LEAF zero-emission, all-electric vehicle commercially available in the Bay Area when it debuts in December 2010. Nissan will work with San Francisco and the region to promote and develop a vehicle-charging infrastructure, including home charging, as well as streamlining the process for installing charging equipment. The Nissan LEAF will be the pilot vehicle used to roll out the streamlined process.
