NEW YORK...Nissan recently announced the expansion of its successful "No Charge to Charge" promotion, which will provide two years of no-cost public charging with the purchase or lease of a new Nissan LEAF. In total, Nissan will launch "No Charge to Charge" in 25 U.S. markets, which are currently responsible for more than 80 percent of Nissan LEAF sales.
Ross Nissan El Monte is now participating in this program.
The "No Charge to Charge" expansion will use the new EZ-ChargeSM card, a first-of-its-kind platform that will offer Nissan LEAF owners access to the leading EV charging networks with a single, all-access card. New owners will receive an EZ-Charge card that will provide access to chargers with ChargePoint, Blink Network from Car Charging Group, AeroVironment and NRG eVgo.
"No Charge to Charge" and "EZ-Charge" are a winning combination, making public charging free and easy for new LEAF buyers," said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing, Aftersales. "Public charging is an important way to provide added range confidence to EV buyers and persuade more shoppers to join the more than 110,000 LEAF drivers around the world."
"Nissan's commitment to mass-market electric cars is matched by our commitment to increase charging infrastructure for LEAF owners," said Brendan Jones, director, Nissan EV Infrastructure and Strategy. "EZ-Charge is a natural progression of our multi-pronged commitment to developing EV charging at the workplace, campuses, at Nissan LEAF dealerships and in the communities where LEAF drivers live and work."
The EZ-Charge access card is managed by NRG eVgo with support from ChargePoint, Car Charging and AeroVironment. With the EZ-Charge card, you can enjoy fast charging that gets you back on the road quicker. Level 2 Chargers deliver range at a rate of 12-25 miles per hour when charging. DC Fast Chargers can deliver similar range in only minutes! This means your Nissan Leaf can be charged up to 80% full in less than 30 minutes!
