One final thing Gurley Leep Nissan, serving the greater Mishawaka area would like to note: The new Nissan EV quick charger is a universal design. That means it isn't built exclusively for the Nissan LEAF and will work with other EVs - Nissan or not.

When will the Nissan EV quick charger be available? Gurley Leep Nissan can't exactly say for sure, at this time. It is slated to launch in Japan, this November. All signs point to it coming to the U.S., shortly thereafter. But, no specific time frame has been set. That said, Gurley Leep Nissan, located at 5210 N Grape Road, promises you'll be among the first to know, when the plan becomes finalized.
