Nissan has announced an extension of its “No Charge to Charge” promotion to 11 new markets including: Chattanooga, Tennessee; Cincinnati; Cleveland/Akron; Columbia, S.C.; Columbus, Ohio; Detroit; Knoxville, Tennessee; Las Vegas; Pittsburgh; Providence, R.I.; and Reno, Nevada.
Nissan first launched its “No Charge to Charge” promotion in 10 markets in July 2014, and it is now available in a total of 38 markets in the U.S., offering new LEAF buyers two years of complimentary public charging with the purchase or lease of the all-electric car from participating LEAF-certified dealers.
“The economics are easy — when you buy a Nissan LEAF you save money on fuel and spend less on regular maintenance costs, and that’s in addition to federal and state tax incentives and other benefits that are available in select markets,” said Brian Maragno, director, Nissan Electric Vehicle Sales and Marketing. “We know that public charging is a key element in providing additional range confidence for electric vehicle drivers, and free public charging is a great way to make Nissan LEAF an unrivaled value for the average American driver.”
With more than 224,000 global sales and more than 94,000 in the U.S., Nissan LEAF is the world’s best-selling electric car. The 2016 Nissan LEAF has a starting price of $26,700 after the federal tax credit of $7,500 for the SV model and $29,290 for LEAF SL after the federal tax credit. Both the SV and SL models boast an EPA-rated range of 107 miles on a single charge. Nissan LEAF S models continue to be equipped with a 24 kWh battery with an EPA-estimated range of 84 miles. Starting price for 2016 Nissan LEAF S grade remains $21,510 after the federal tax incentive.
All LEAF models feature an 80kW AC synchronous motor that generates 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque, providing a highly responsive, fun-to-drive experience that consumers often expect from traditional, gasoline-powered vehicles. Unlike internal combustion engine-equipped vehicles, LEAF has no tailpipe, which means there is no emission of CO2 or other greenhouse gases. The public quick chargers can charge a LEAF from zero to 80 percent in less than 30 minutes.
Nissan’s “No Charge to Charge” program is now available in 38 of the top markets for Nissan LEAF sales, including Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Chattanooga, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland/Akron, Columbia, Columbus, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Denver, Detroit, Fresno, Houston, Indianapolis, Knoxville, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Monterey, New York, Nashville, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Portland, Ore., Providence, Raleigh-Durham, Reno, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Seattle, Washington D.C.
