BRISTOL, Connecticut — The gift of time is Crowley Nissan's latest "giveaway."
The dealership is now home to one of Connecticut's only high-speed electric vehicle chargers. The public may use it for free.
"Guests have responded to it very well," said Crowley Nissan General Manager Jason Fontaine.
In a 30-minute charge, a Nissan Leaf EV's battery can reach 80 percent of its capacity. A normal charger takes about eight hours.
"It has the potential to help sell cars," he said. "There have been many times when someone comes in for service, walks around and leaves with a brand new car," he said. "I expect that will happen with the high-speed charger."
Crowley Nissan sells approximately 15 EVs per year, Fontaine said.
