Nissan first introduced its innovative “No Charge to Charge” program in July 2014, offering Nissan LEAF owners or leasees in certain areas the opportunity to charge their cars for free. At first available to just 10 markets, the program has since expanded and is now available in 38 markets across the country.
Officials say “the economics are easy” when it comes to the Nissan “No Charge to Charge” program. With public charging stations still be relatively uncommon, car buyers are still hesitant to jump into the electric car market, especially with their somewhat limited range. A big draw of electric cars is that they’re money savers because they don’t use any gasoline, so free public charging incentivizes buying electric cars even more.
Public charging is necessary to give electric car drivers more range confidence, and having the option of free charging is a major draw over gasoline, for which prices have noticeably risen in the last few months.
The public chargers Nissan has developed can recharge a LEAF from 0% battery to 80% in less than 30 minutes. This will be even more of a benefit when the next-generation LEAF is released in 2018 with a much longer range than its current range. The current LEAF sells for an affordable $21,510 after federal tax incentives.
