    I don't think so, it is a collective installing them:

    But at least for now it sounds like they aren't charging for use of them.

    It's probably CHAdeMO and CCS with some SAE L2 as well.

    Many low range electric cars advertise 30 minutes to 80% via DCFC.

    They would have to install them every 50 miles.

    That's what I don't understand about US BEV's with under 100 miles range. Fast charging for the Western US is sort of pointless. Drive an hour, wait 30 minutes, drive an hour, wait 30 minutes, rinse and repeat. Only a masochist would take a Leaf up 95 if there were DC fast charging stations.

    A Model S can't achieve that.
