2010 Nissan Leaf EV - Click above for hi-res image gallery

Nissan will work with the Arizona-based Electric Transportation Engineering Corp. to build the charging network that will be important for rolling out the Leaf electric vehicle. We knew that Nissan and eTec will work to install 2,500 EV charging stations in(and bring 5,000 Leafs to) Tennessee, Oregon, San Diego, Seattle and the Phoenix/Tucson region in Arizona. Yesterday, eTec signed a $99.8 million contract with the U.S. DOE that details that eTec will put in 10,950 Level 2 (220-volt) chargers and 260 Level 3 (440-volt) fast-chargers in those areas. The signing marked the official start of "The EV Project," Nissan and eTec's name for their roll-out. Green Car Advisor says The EV Project will be "the biggest deployment of electric vehicles -- and creation of the largest charging infrastructure -- ever undertaken."
