Nissan brings “No Charge to Charge” promotion for Leaf to Los Angeles

Article by Christian A., on July 28, 2014

Nissan is bringing its “No Charge to Charge” promotion for the Leaf electric vehicle to Los Angeles on Aug. 15, providing free access – thru an EZ-Charge card -- to public charging stations for two years. The LA program will also include Leaf EVs bought after July 1, 2014.

Nissan launched the “No Charge to Charge” program in September 2013 in the Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston areas and has since expanded it to San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle, Nashville, Phoenix, Washington, Portland, Ore.; and Sacramento, Calif.

Nissan is planning to add 14 more markets to the program in 2014. As part of te program, Leaf buyers in these locations can charge their units at no costs -- including via fast chargers -- at participating ChargePoint, Blink, CarCharging, AeroVironment and NRG eVgo stations.

Brendan Jones, director of Nissan electric vehicle sales and infrastructure, said in a statement that offering free access to public fast charging facilities in the LA market gives the Leaf a “competitive edge” over other vehicles, regardless of fuel source.

The Leaf used to struggle in the US in terms of sales until May 2013 when it sold 2,138. In June 2014, Nissan sold 2,347 Leafs in the US and even posted a 29-percent jump in sales in the first half of the year to 12,736 units.

The 2014 Leaf could travel 84 miles on a single charge. The state of California provides additional incentives for EVs, including a $2,500 tax rebate and access to high-occupancy vehicle lanes.
