Hey Atlanta: Buy a LEAF, Get Free Public Charging
Nissan has extended its No Charge to Charge program to Atlanta, Georgia, the largest market for sales of the Nissan LEAF electric car in the U.S. The program gives buyers two years of free charging at public plug-in stations around the Atlanta area as part of their purchase or lease of the car.
The program currently offers access to more than a dozen public charging stations in the Atlanta area and the list grows regularly as more stations are installed or join the network. 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. The program applies to LEAF buyers who purchased their new Nissan LEAF on or after November 1 of this year.
"Atlanta is America’s biggest market for LEAF, and access to free public charging can enhance the convenience of driving an electric car and motivate additional consumers to make the switch to Nissan LEAF," said Brendan Jones, director, Nissan Electric Vehicle Sales and Infrastructure.
Atlanta has been the number one 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 and a number of major companies who now provide workplace charging for their employees.
Atlanta becomes the thirteenth major market for the LEAF which includes No Charge to Charge with purchase and a network of chargers around the area. Just before Atlanta, the program entered Chicago. The No Charge to Charge program aims to reduce range anxiety and increase convenience for LEAF buyers.
