Nissan takes the charge out of EV charging in 25 US markets
Via the new EZ-ChargeSM card, owners of the LEAF electric vehicle will be able to access charging points from Aerovironment, Blink Network, Chargepoint and NERG eVgo via a single membership, and pay nothing to plug in for two years.
The card launches from the 1st July, but will be backdated to customers who bought a LEAF from the 1st April onwards. From 15 launch markets, Nissan will extend the “No Charge to Charge” promotion to another ten markets by the end of the year – said to account for 80% of LEAF sales in the United States.
Brendan Jones, director, Nissan EV Infrastructure and Strategy, commented: ‘Nissan's commitment to mass-market electric cars is matched by our commitment to increase charging infrastructure for LEAF owners. EZ-Charge is a natural progression of our multi-pronged commitment to developing EV charging at workplace campuses, at Nissan LEAF dealerships and in the communities where LEAF drivers live and work.’For more of the latest industry news, click here.
