Nissan’s “No Charge to Charge” promotion has officially arrived in Minneapolis-St. Paul, providing new Nissan LEAF buyers two years of complimentary public charging with the purchase of the all-electric car from LEAF-certified dealers in the Twin Cities region.
“Nissan LEAF is an attractive option for Minneapolis-St. Paul car shoppers — in addition to the $7,500 federal tax credit, LEAF buyers can enjoy two years of free public charging,” said Andrew Speaker, director, Electric Vehicle (EV) Sales & Marketing, Nissan. “Those benefits, combined with the significantly lower operating costs and zero spending on gas, make owning an all-electric vehicle a cost-effective and convenient choice.”
Nissan now offers “No Charge to Charge” in 22 of the top markets for Nissan LEAF sales, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Diego, Fresno, Seattle, Portland (Oregon), Chicago, Atlanta, Indianapolis, Nashville, Phoenix, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Houston, Denver, Washington, D.C., Boston, Monterey, Austin, Raleigh-Durham and Salt Lake City. Nissan plans to expand the “No Charge to Charge” program to a total of 25 U.S. markets in the coming months.
With more than 192,000 global sales and more than 86,000 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.
Consumers can find chargers eligible for “No Charge to Charge” via the LEAF EZ-Charge app for iOS or Android or at ez-charge.com/stations.
