| 2014-09-12 | 0 Comments

Nissan is leading a partnership of Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) manufacturers in a joint project through the European Union’s Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) program, to create a multi-standard and interoperable network through the United Kingdom and Ireland.

EU_Project_EVNissan is joined in the project by BMW, VW and Renault: it’s the first time leading BEV companies have united to accelerate the growth of EV charging infrastructure, seen as a key enabler towards making zero-emission mobility a market reality. As well as helping to finance the €7+ million scheme, the consortium is providing other members of the project with the benefit of its extensive experience in the BEV field.
When complete, the UK Rapid Charge Network (RCN) will comprise more than 70 multi standard rapid chargers covering some 1,100 km of major trunk routes and providing EV-friendly links to five seaports and five international airports.
