Nissan's No Charge To Charge

When you buy a gas-powered vehicle you have to factor in gas prices, but you assume a gas station will be there when you need one. It’s not so easy when you buy an electric-powered car. You still have to account for fees when using public charging stations, but you can’t count on one being convenient when you need it. The money, time to charge, and lack of stations are hurdles that EV sellers are trying to deal with.

Nissan is making some strides in overcoming these problems with a new program called “No Charge to Charge” which allows new owners in the United States to charge at public stations for free for two years. This helps with the associated fees for charging but what about convenient locations? Nissan is working on that too. The company is adding 500 more quick chargers at Nissan dealerships and other locations. These stations offer an 80% charge in as little as 30 minutes.

New owners get an EZ-Charge card which gives them access to five of the leading EV-charging networks, including ChargePoint, Blink, CarCharging, Aerovironment, and NRG eVgo.

For now this offer is available in only 10 of the cities with the highest sales of Leaf vehicles. In California, buyers in San Francisco, Sacramento, and San Diego can take advantage. The same goes if you buy in Seattle, Washington; Portland, Oregon; or Nashville, Tennessee. Phoenix, Arizona; Dallas-Ft Worth, Texas; and Washington, DC round out the 10 lucky cities.

Don’t despair if you can’t get to one of these cities. Nissan plans to expand the program to include 15 more locations although these markets have not yet been announced.
