Faster chargers for electric cars are heading to Tampa Bay

TEMPLE TERRACE — Owners of electric vehicles, accustomed to spending five hours or so to recharge their cars, will soon have seven new fast-charging stations around the Tampa Bay area that can fill their cars and have them back on the road in 30 minutes or less.

Scores of electric vehicle chargers dot the landscape of the Tampa Bay area, but most of them are the slower models that take hours to recharge electric car batteries. The first of the Nissan Quick Chargers has been installed in the parking lot across from Temple Terrace City Hall, next to Outback Steakhouse, and is expected to be open for business next week.
