When it was revealed in October Nissan said that the Ariya uses CHAdeMO quick charging for the battery. It's the same charging port that Nissan uses with the Leaf and what Mitsubishi uses with the i-MiEV and the Outlander P-HEV.

According to Nissan's press release from the Tokyo Motor Show, "When it’s time to charge, the Ariya Concept uses CHAdeMO quick charging to energize the battery swiftly and conveniently. The charging port unlocks upon the driver’s approach and uses distinct colors to show the vehicle’s charge status at a glance."

I'm surprised that Nissan is sticking with CHAdeMO given how popular CCES chargers are with other automakers.

Nissan hasn't released the charging times yet but it's likely that it'll be slower than other electric SUVs that use CCES charging. If that's the case it'll definitely be a letdown.

Any idea if they'll use Chademo 50KW charging or 100KW+?
It hasn't been confirmed yet but InsideEVs suggest somewhere betwenn 100-150 kW charging.

The key features, expected for the Ariya, are long-range, dual-motor all-wheel-drive (at least as an option) and a liquid-cooled battery with high-power charging capability (at least 100-150 kW we guess, maybe more).

Thanks. I own the Model S for many years and never have to worry about the charging when travel because the Superchargers are readily available. I am interested at the Ariya and certainly want to find out the charging capability. I understand most of the CCS charging stations have both CCS and Chademo cables. Are these stations DC fast chargers 100+KW and may be 350KW charging for both standard?

I think it varies for each provider how many CHAdeMO chargers they have. For example, on Electrify America's website they have 442 CCS-CHAdeMO charging stations, which is less than their 1513 CCS stations. Their CHAdeMO chargers can charge at up to 50kW, while their CCS chargers can do 350KW.

It's surprising that Nissan is sticking with CHAdeMO but I guess it's part of their partnership with Renault and Mitsubishi. Hopefully they have something planned for the premiere about faster charging.
