Présentation : Filed under EV Plug in, Nissan On Thursday, Nissan America officials joined Governor Pat Quinn and the city of Chicago in announcing an accelerated Illinois rollout of the Leaf for this fall. Why the hurry up Well, because the state of Illinois is ready, Leaf ready. Back in February, Governor Quinn announced an investment of 1 million to install a state of the art charging infrastructure for electric vehicles throughout the Chicagoland area, matching 1 million in Clean Cities grants. When all is said and done, the project will result in a network of 280 charging stations. Additionally, Illinois offers up to 4,000 in rebates for the purchase of electric and alternative technology vehicles making the Leaf even more affordable to the state's estimated 12.9 million residents. Working with 350Green, the city of Chicago has spearheaded an aggressive infrastructure rollout that calls for 73 DC quick charge stations and 207 Level 2 units to be installed at public locations by the end of 2011. Thus far, only 40 of those stations are operational but, when complete, the Chicagoland area will be able to brag about having the U.S.' most extensive plug in vehicle infrastructure. Perhaps other states, ones that aren't nearly as Leaf ready, should pay attention to how Nissan responds to an area's level of plug in readiness.
