Nissan has launched its No Charge to Charge program for LEAF buyers in Atlanta, offering no-cost access to more than a dozen quick chargers spread throughout the greater Atlanta market for two years with the purchase or lease of a new LEAF electric car.
These quick chargers can charge a LEAF from zero to 80 percent in less than 30 minutes, providing drivers additional range to extend the use of their car, according to the automaker.
Nissan is also extending the program to LEAF owners who purchased or leased their vehicle on or after Nov. 1.
Atlanta has been the top LEAF market since mid-2013 due to a variety of factors, including an available Georgia state tax credit, single-occupant access to high occupancy vehicle (HOV) and high occupancy toll (HOT) lanes, according to Nissan. Several companies in the area now provide workplace charging for their employees.
Nissan now offers No Charge to Charge in 13 of the top markets for Nissan LEAF sales, including San Francisco, Seattle, Phoenix, Houston, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, and Chicago. By mid-2015, Nissan plans to offer the No Charge to Charge program at LEAF dealers in at least 12 additional U.S. markets.
