Carmaker teams up with housing developer for electric vehicle ready homes

Nissan is partnering with a housing developer in the USA on a residential electric vehicle wiring project.

It will see 190 new EV-ready homes built in California, with pre-wired garages and parking spaces allowing easy installation of an EV charging point.

It will also have public EV charging points in the development's retail park.

The scheme from Nissan, which has launched the Leaf electric hatchback and will add more EVs in the coming years, and housing developer City Ventures is another step towards enhancing the charging infrastructure, an essential factor in accelerating the uptake of electric vehicles.

Around 15,000 public charging stations are due for installation across the US in the next few years.

California has set an aim of zero emissions for 5% of all its new vehicle sales by 2020.
