Nissan Brings No Charge to Charge to Chicago
Nissan has added Chicago to the ever-growing list of major cities where it’s “No Charge to Charge” a LEAF EV.
The Windy City is the latest beneficiary of Nissan’s program, which allows for two years of cost-free public charging to customers who purchase or lease a new LEAF, including access to the city’s fast chargers that allow for an 80% charge in a 30 minute span.
“Nissan LEAF is an attractive option for Chicago car buyers for a number of reasons, such as the available Illinois Alternative Fuels Rebate of up to $4,000* and significantly lower operating costs than a gas-powered car,” said Brendan Jones, director, Nissan Electric Vehicle Sales and Infrastructure Strategy. “Adding free public fast charging in Chicagoland gives Nissan LEAF an even greater competitive edge over other vehicles, regardless of their fuel source.”
The move rolls the number of cities where “No Charge to Charge” is available up to 12. Chicago joins San Francisco, Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Diego, Seattle, Portland, Nashville, Phoenix, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Houston, and Washington, D.C.
Nissan says that it intends to move “No Charge to Charge” into an additional 13 markets by the end of 2015.
