Everybody loves free gas, but what about free electricity? When you drive an electric car, like the Nissan LEAF, while you don’t have to pay for gasoline, you still have to pay for electricity.
Now, if you purchase a new LEAF, you will receive free access to a wide network of charging stations for two years. Nissan has partnered with ChargePoint, Blink, AeroVironment, and NRG eVgo for the “No Charge to Charge” program. Customers will receive one EZ-Charge card, which will give them access to all four networks.
Initially, this program will only be offered in select cities, such as Seattle, Pheonix, and Washington D.C. However, this list is expected to grow by the end of the year.
This program will definitely help relieve some of the range-anxiety that comes with driving an electric car. Now, LEAF drivers can feel confident knowing they can find a charge, even on longer trips.
Does this free access to charging stations across the country make you more likely to purchase a Nissan LEAF?
