Nissan Charges Up Michigan with Two New Public Fast-Charge Stations
Two towns in southeastern Michigan will be seeing a lot more electric vehicles (EV) this summer thanks to Nissan, who just completed the installation of two new DC fast-charge stations in the Wolverine State.
Located along the I-96 expressway at USA 2 GO convenience stores in the towns of Novi and Howell, the newly installed fast-charge stations will give EV drivers a chance to charge up while navigating one of Michigan’s most highly traveled and congested highways.
With the installation of these two fast-charge stations, Nissan has increased Michigan’s statewide fast-charge system by 15%.

“Nissan is dedicated to building a convenient EV charging infrastructure across the U.S. While it’s not a priority for everyone, we firmly believe a robust infrastructure is key to the growth of EVs,” said JeSean Hopkins, senior manager, EV infrastructure strategy & business development, Nissan North America. “Adding these fast chargers to Michigan’s EV infrastructure will benefit all regional EV owners, regardless of make or model.”
Nissan collaborated with EVgo and GoSpace to bring the new DC fast-charge stations to Michigan and each station “includes both CHAdeMO and CCS (Combined Charging System) DC fast-charging outlets so all EV owners have the ability to charge their vehicles,” according to Nissan.

“This expansion will allow EV owners a quick, safe and convenient place to charge their vehicles while traveling greater distances. Nissan is proud to reaffirm its commitment to public fast-charging infrastructure with these new locations in anticipation of the upcoming next-generation Nissan LEAF. The all-new LEAF will be unveiled globally in September,” reports Nissan.
The Nissan LEAF is the world’s first mass-market electric vehicle and, according to Nissan, the to-be-released new model of the Nissan LEAF represents another installment in Nissan’s mission and philosophy of Intelligent Zero-Emissions Mobility.
