BOSTON (July 8, 2015) — Nissan Motor Co. has launched its “No Charge to Charge” program for Boston-area Nissan Leaf buyers.
The promotion, rolled out July 1 at Nissan Leaf dealers in the Boston market, provides two years of complimentary public charging with the purchase of the all-electric car from Leaf-certified dealers.
“Nissan Leaf is an attractive option for Boston car buyers because it is fun to drive and offers significantly lower operating costs when compared to a gas-powered car,” claimed Andrew Speaker, director of electric vehicle (EV) sales and marketing for Nissan.
“EV charging infrastructure continues to grow in Boston, and access to free public charging for new Leaf buyers helps make owning an all-electric vehicle even more cost-effective and convenient.”
No Charge to Charge includes access to fast chargers that, according to Nissan, can take a Leaf battery pack from empty to 80 percent in about 30 minutes, as well as level 2 (240V) chargers spread throughout the Boston area.
The auto maker now offers the program in 17 U.S. markets, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Diego and Fresno, Calif., Seattle, Portland, Ore., Chicago, Atlanta, Indianapolis, Nashville, Tenn., Phoenix, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, Denver and Washington, D.C. Nissan said it plans to offer the program at Leaf dealerships in at least 25 U.S. markets later this year.
The company claims the Leaf “is the world's best-selling electric car” — with more than 180,000 global sales and more than 80,000 in the U.S.
More information about the No Charge to Charge promotion is available on the company's website. Consumers also can find eligible chargers by clicking here or via the Nissan EZ-Charge app for iOS or Android.
Nissan makes and markets a range of more than 60 models under the Nissan, Infiniti and Datsun brands.
