Chevrolet Volt and the Nissan LEAF are partners in The EV Project and drivers who qualify to participate receive a residential charger at no cost. In addition, a portion of the installation cost will be paid for by The EV Project. The EV Project collects and analyzes data to characterize vehicle use in diverse topographic and climatic conditions, evaluates the effectiveness of charge infrastructure, and conducts trials of various revenue systems for commercial and public charge infrastructures. The ultimate goal of The EV Project is to take the lessons learned from the deployment of the first thousands of EVs, and the charging infrastructure supporting them, to enable the streamlined deployment of the next generation of EVs to come.
