In-Charge Energy to support Nissan NA with EV Charging Program


On Tuesday, commercial fleet EV infrastructure solutions company, In-Charge Energy, announced it is working with Nissan North America. Accordingly, this partnership with the automaker consists of installing charging hardware and software at more than 500 dealerships across the United States.

In fact, the upgraded chargers are part of the preparations for the all-new 2022 Nissan Ariya electric crossover. As the companies shared in a media release, they expect to launch this joint work later this year.

Reception and more about the In-Charge Energy – Nissan collaboration

In this sense, Cameron Funk, CEO of In-Charge Energy, commented; “Having a well-equipped dealer network is critical to a successful EV rollout. Therefore, it is incredibly important that we help create a seamless experience for Nissan customers; which indeed include early adopters of the Leaf as well as new market entrants who will love the Ariya.”

Accordingly, the all-new Ariya will have CCS-format DC fast charging rather than the CHAdeMo-format charging. Previously, the latter has been used in the Nissan Leaf EV since 2010.

Thus, the In-Charge team worked closely with Nissan to identify and swap dealers’ CHAdeMo-compliant fast chargers with newer 50 kW fast chargers; particularly, from ABB that can charge Nissan’s older EVs as well as the new Ariya.  

About In-Control

Besides the sweeping charging hardware upgrades across the country, Nissan opted to deploy In-Charge Energy’s software platform, In-Control. Therefore, as the first fleet-focused charger management platform, In-Control allows users to operate digitally, monitor, and maintain individual chargers throughout a charger’s life cycle.

Similarly, In-Control even allows dealers to pull reports for carbon-emission tax credit opportunities.

In this sense, Krishna Vanka, Chief Product Officer at In-Charge Energy, commented; “Indeed, our In-Control software is like the Office Suite of fleet charging. Thus, this platform will allow Nissan dealers to keep track of their chargers’ performance easily. Besides, it makes it easy to submit work orders if they experience any issues.”

Lastly, In-Charge noted that it expects the hardware installations and additional infrastructure upgrades at Nissan’s dealerships to be complete by the end of 2021.
