Today Nissan announces the next expansion market in its “No Charge to Charge” promotion for Nissan LEAF buyers in Madison, Wisconsin. The program provides up to two years complimentary public charging with the qualifying purchase or lease of the electric vehicle (EV) from LEAF-certified Nissan dealers in the Madison area.
“As a pioneer in bringing affordable EVs to the mass market, Nissan understands that EV owners want to be confident in their ability to drive longer distances and this program does just that,” said Brian Maragno, director, Nissan EV Sales and Marketing. “‘No Charge to Charge’ makes driving an EV easier than ever, while also offering no-cost public charging, saving the average LEAF owner up to $1,000 in charging costs over the 24-month program.”
Nissan introduced “No Charge to Charge” to the Badger State earlier this year, launching in Milwaukee. The 2016 Nissan LEAF gets up to 107 miles of range, which would make a trip from Madison to Milwaukee feasible on just one charge.
The “No Charge to Charge” promotion supports Nissan’s recent commitment to provide numerous convenient charging stations across Wisconsin that are compatible with a range of EVs. This inclusive implementation, named “Infrastructure for All,” incorporates two types of charging ports, which means that each new fast-charging station coming online will include both CHAdeMO and SAE Combo connectors.
Fast chargers are capable of charging LEAF battery packs from empty to 80 percent in approximately 30 minutes. Today, about 90 percent of LEAF owners live in cities covered by “No Charge to Charge,” including cities such as Chicago, Indianapolis, Cleveland and Minneapolis.
Consumers can find participating “No Charge to Charge” charging stations via the LEAF EZ-Charge app available for iOS or Android devices or at www.ez-charge.com/stations.*Automotive World is not responsible for the content of this news release.
