Thanks to Nissan, Calloway Oil of Maryville, TN and Brightfield Transportation Solutions (out of Asheville, NC) there are three new DC fast charge (DCFC) units in the greater Knoxville area that can quickly refuel electric vehicles (EVs). Working with the East Tennessee Clean Fuels Coalition, these chargers have been at added in Knoxville, Maryville and Lenoir City. All three sites are at Calloway Oil’s E‐Z Stop convenience stores (Exxon/Mobil):
- 8605 Walbrook Dr, Knoxville, TN 37923
- 1758 W. Broadway, Maryville, TN 37803
- 1111 US Hwy 321, Lenoir City, TN 37771
A grand opening event was held at the Knoxville location on August 18, 2016 to celebrate both these chargers and additional chargers that have been installed throughout East TN so far this year, thanks to the leadership of Nissan North America.
See the email and press release announcement for the event here.
See the “Resources” tab on this site and the “EV Station Locator” page to see the new sites that also include 4 new DCFC units in the greater Chattanooga area, 1 new unit in Cleveland and 1 new unit in Dandridge, TN. (On that page, use the “more search options” to uncheck the Level 1 and Level 2 chargers so that you can more clearly see the DCFC units across the state).
Several of the units will help enable greater EV travel between Chattanooga and Knoxville, while the Dandridge location is helping fill-in the corridor between Knoxville and the Tri-Cities.
