NASHVILLE, Tennessee – Nissan’s “No Charge To Charge” promotion debuted in Minneapolis and St. Paul this week. It provides 2016 Nissan Leaf buyers with two years of complimentary public charging.
The program is designed to make the Leaf electric car more competitive against such offerings as the Chevrolet Spark EV, Ford Focus Electric and Mitsubishi i-MiEV.
Leaf owners can find the chargers via the Leaf EZ-Charge app for iOS or Android or here.
“No Charge To Charge” is offered in 22 of the top markets for Nissan Leaf sales, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Nashville, Denver and Boston.
The 2016 Leaf is on sale now at Nissan dealerships.
As EV sales grow, there is more demand for publicly available fast-charging stations to take the edge off of “range anxiety” or the fear that the vehicle will run out of power before it can be recharged.
BMW of North America recently announced the ChargeNow DC Fast Expansion program in cooperation with EVgo.
BMW said it is supporting EVgo’s installation of an incremental 500 DC Fast Combo chargers to benefit BMW i3 customers and “all EV drivers in the U.S.” with charging capability.
Tesla Motors is in the process of building a coast-to-coast Supercharger network for its vehicles, including the Tesla Model S and Model X.
Edmunds says: Your Nissan dealer will be happy to provide more details about this worthwhile program and let you know if it is available in your area.
