Participating Nissan LEAFs have spent a combined 19.4 years at public fast-charge stations while saving more than $4.2 million in charging fees
“No Charge to Charge” program can save new LEAF owners as much as $1,000 over two years and up to $10 per charge
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nissan’s popular “No Charge to Charge” program expands to 10 new markets today, continuing the push to provide LEAF owners with no-cost public charging. The program offers new LEAF buyers free public charging for the first two years of ownership, drastically reducing or completely eliminating the costs of operating their vehicle.
The significantly expanded list of markets now included in the two-year “No Charge to Charge” program are:
Colorado Springs/Pueblo, Colo.
Palm Springs, Fla.
Tampa/St. Petersburg/Sarasota, Fla.
“The addition of these 10 new markets expands the reach of the No Charge to Charge program to 48 cities across the country,” said Brian Maragno, director, Nissan Electric Vehicle Sales and Marketing. “Since the program kicked off in the summer of 2014, owners have saved over $4.2 million in public charging fees.”
Nissan’s partnership with multiple public charging networks provides new owners access to more than 800 participating quick public charging stations, making life with an electric vehicle (EV) easier than ever. With public charging spots conveniently located throughout each city, LEAF owners can charge their electric vehicles up to 80-percent capacity in as little as 30 minutes.
“All of our recent investments in expanding public quick charging have been in dual-corded equipment, providing access and availability to multiple other EV models,” said Maragno. “‘EV Infrastructure for All’ is important to move the entire industry forward. We intend to continue our inclusive efforts to ensure all EV drivers have access to public quick charging that is open and convenient to use.”
Like previously announced markets, new LEAF owners receive complementary public charging for an unlimited number of uses during the first 24 months of ownership. Through the “No Charge to Charge” program, customers can expect to save as much as $1,000 over the two-year period and up to $10 per charge depending on their city.
Consumers can find chargers eligible for “No Charge to Charge” via the LEAF EZ-Charge app for iOS or Android or at EZ-Charge.com/Stations.
