Nissan’s “No Charge to Charge” program increases to 27 cities in the U.S. with the addition of Orlando
“Nissan’s “No Charge to Charge” promotion has officially arrived to the Sunshine State. Nissan will now provide new Nissan LEAF buyers two years of complimentary public charging with the purchase or lease of the all-electric car from participating LEAF-certified dealers in Orlando.
“Nissan LEAF is an ideal option for Orlando commuters — in addition to the $7,500 federal tax incentives and HOV lane access*, LEAF buyers can enjoy two years of free public charging,” said Andrew Speaker, director, Electric Vehicle (EV) Sales & Marketing, Nissan. “Significantly lower operating costs and a fun-to-drive nature make owning the all-electric LEAF a cost-effective and convenient choice for Orlando residents.”[adToAppearHere]
Nissan now offers “No Charge to Charge” in 27 of the top markets for Nissan LEAF sales, including Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Denver, Fresno, Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Monterey, New York, Nashville, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, OR, Raleigh-Durham, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Seattle, Washington D.C.[adToAppearHere]
With more than 205,000 global sales and more than 90,000 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.”
