“We are focused on facilitating longer distance travel so that even more drivers will choose to experience the convenience of e-mobility for themselves” BMW North America connected e-mobility manager Cliff Fietzek says in the joint release.
“By working with BMW to increase the number of available public quick-chargers, we are able to further enhance range confidence among EV drivers across the country,” Nissan EV sales and marketing director Andrew Speaker.
