ECOtality and Nissan partner to launch EVs in Arizona

ECOtality Inc has entered into a commitment with Nissan North America and Pima Association of Governments (PAG) to facilitate the establishment of electric vehicle (EV) charge infrastructure throughout Pima County, Arizona, USA.

In conjunction with the anticipated 2010 launch of Nissan’s zero-emission EV, ECOtality will initiate its EV Micro-Climate programme in the Tucson region to promote policies, deployment of charge infrastructure, and public awareness to foster the successful consumer adoption of grid-connected electric vehicles.

ECOtality, PAG and Nissan have committed to work together to establish an EV Micro-Climate Working Group in Pima County that will unite strategic regional organisations to help streamline the roll-out of charge infrastructure and public launch of grid-connected vehicles.

In conjunction with these efforts, Nissan has committed to make available a supply of electric vehicles to the region’s public and private fleets in 2010.

While the implementation of public charge infrastructure is planned to support the launch of Nissan’s zero-emission vehicle, public charging stations in the Tucson region will meet all EV charge system standards (including the SAE J1772 Electric Vehicle Conductive Charge Coupler Specifications) to be universally compatible with new grid-connected vehicles of other major automakers.
