World leader in electric vehicle (EV) DC fast-charging technology Tritium has signed a deal to provide nine Veefil-RT 50kW DC fast chargers to Nissan to help support the EV automaker’s sponsorship activities ahead of and during the UEFA Champions League Final in Spain.
The nine chargers – which can add 50km of range in just 10 minutes – will make up part of the Nissan and UEFA operations hub at the IFEMA event centre during the lead-up to the final, alongside 20 AC 22kW chargers.
Nissan Zero Emission & Ecosystem Director Brice Fabry said, “the UEFA Champions League is a fantastic showcase for Nissan electric vehicles, and this year we will be doing more than ever to electrify the final in Madrid”.

“Tritium are able to turn around a turnkey solution for charging infrastructure quickly, so we’re very happy to welcome them to the team.”
The Veefil-RT sports the world’s smallest physical footprint for a 50kW DC fast charger and can be installed within hours.
In addition, the chargers will be adapted to suit Nissan’s specific branding requirements for the event.
“We have dedicated staff who worked closely with Nissan’s design team to develop the branding and imagery required to maximise Nissan’s visibility during the event, and each charger will sport these ‘skins’ throughout,” Tritium CEO Dr David Finn said.

“Nissan has been synonymous with electric vehicles and the Nissan LEAF has pushed E-Mobility to the forefront of the public consciousness.
At least two of the chargers will remain on-site following the final, with the remaining seven to be deployed by Nissan elsewhere in Spain.
