No Charge to Charge Program Expands

No Charge to Charge Program

Nissan’s “No Charge to Charge” program makes owning an electric vehicle even more affordable than it already is. While drivers don’t need to stop to fill up at the gas station, they do need to charge their battery packs. With the purchase or lease of a new Nissan LEAF, drivers can do so for free for up to two years.

The two-year “No Charge to Charge” program offers drivers no-cost public charging which can save owners up to $1,000 over the course of the program. That’s a major chunk of change and, with the affordability of the LEAF already established, could change the minds of many drivers opposed to electric vehicles.

The new Nissan LEAF boasts a range of 107 miles. With the introduction of the “No Charge to Charge” program in Madison, Wisconsin, owners can travel to Milwaukee on just one charge.

“As a pioneer in bringing affordable EVs to the mass market, Nissan understands that EV owners want to be confident in their ability to drive longer distances and this program does just that,” said Brian Maragno, Nissan EV Sales and Marketing director.

Nissan has proven time and time again that they’re dedicated to making electric vehicle ownership affordable and available to a vast array of drivers. The latest rollout of the “No Charge to Charge” program further reinforces that dedication.

We here at Nissan of Lake Charles are happy to see more drivers gaining access to an incredible program!

Nissan and BMW Partnership Promises Greater Access to Electricity

There are a lot of reasons to be excited about the future of cars, and not just because they’re finally starting to look like the shiny, sleek beauties we’ve been imagining they’d become since the 60s. Now is the era of the best efficiency, the greatest safety, and the all-around most widespread driving accessibility – and the new Nissan and BMW partnership is taking that last point to a whole other level.  This partnership may just change the way we see cars in the future!

Last month, Nissan announced its intent to, alongside the worldwide engineering giant, BMW, supply the U.S. with 120 new dual fast chargers for the Nissan LEAF and the BMW i3. And no, this isn’t just intended to help Nissan and BMW (though it certainly does); the creation of these 120 locations is also meant to support the widespread adoption of electric vehicles across the country.

The charging stations will be coming to 19 states for now, but keep an eye out for one near your home someday soon! We’re sure this new Nissan and BMW partnership is only the beginning of Nissan’s electric, eco-friendly push.

Tell us at Nissan of Lake Charles, if you are not currently driving an electric vehicle, would you switch to one if there were more charging stations?
