Fastned starts partnership with Nissan
Two years unlimited fast charging with every new Nissan LEAF
Amsterdam, 22 September 2015. Fastned has joined forces with Nissan to offer two years of free unlimited fast charging with each new Nissan LEAF. The new LEAF will be available starting january with a 30 kWh battery. The larger range of 250 km, together with unlimited fast charging give the electric driver freedom throughout The Netherlands.
Fastned builds a national network of fast charging stations on premium locations along the highway. Currently 38 stations are operational and Fastned is building a new station every week. At the end of this year the Fastned network will count 50 fast charging stations. Fast charging at Fastned is available for virtually all electric cars and takes about 20 minutes. Michiel Langezaal, CEO: “In fact, it’s quite logical to offer unlimited fast charging with electric cars. Most people buy mobile phones including a subscription. The same is true for electric driving, people just want to be able to charge quickly and easily without fuss. That’s what we offer with this partnership.”
The new Nissan LEAF with larger range is on sale starting today. The ‘EV carefree package’ comes standard with every LEAF and now includes 2 years of unlimited fast charging at all Fastned stations. Besides fast charging, this package offers a replacement vehicle for holidays, a service package and a home charging system. This is great news for everyone who considers to switch to an electric car.

Fastned is building a European network of fast-charging stations where all electric cars can charge within 20 minutes. The stations are located at high traffic locations along the highways and in cities. This will give electric cars the freedom to drive across Europe. As of today, Fastned has 69 stations (including two 350kW stations) operational in The Netherlands and is working on expanding its fast charging network to the rest of Europe. Fastned is preparing the construction of fast charging stations in Germany, The United Kingdom and Belgium. Fastned is listed on the Nxchange stock exchange.
Fastned is rolling out its network of fast charging stations in response to the rapidly increasing numbers of EVs in Europe. Car manufacturers are investing billions of Euros in the development of, and production capacity for EVs. More and more EVs are hitting the roads, which drives the need for charging infrastructure. Fastned is responding to this development by building the service stations of the future. Co-founder and CEO Michiel Langezaal: “We are the Shell of the future, only our energy comes from the sun and the wind.”
