In 2010, Nissan’s first LEAF spearheaded a revolution in all-electric vehicles (EVs). Since that time, many other automobile companies have dabbled in EV concepts, but the LEAF remains the undisputed sales leader, with 185,000 current LEAF owners worldwide.
Now, Nissan is leading the EV charge once more. The company recently announced an extension of its "No Charge to Charge" promotion to 11 additional markets including: Chattanooga, Tennessee; Cincinnati; Cleveland/Akron; Columbia, S.C.; Columbus, Ohio; Detroit; Knoxville, Tennessee; Las Vegas; Pittsburgh; Providence, R.I.; and Reno, Nevada.
Brian Maragno, director of Nissan’s Electric Vehicle Sales and Marketing division, said when coupled with available tax credits and incentives, the LEAF becomes one of the most economical options for drivers in both the short and long run.
"The economics are easy — when you buy a Nissan LEAF you save money on fuel and spend less on regular maintenance costs, and that's in addition to federal and state tax incentives and other benefits that are available in select markets," Maragno said. "We know that public charging is a key element in providing additional range confidence for electric vehicle drivers, and free public charging is a great way to make Nissan LEAF an unrivaled value for the average American driver."
Nissan launched the first "No Charge to Charge" promotion in 10 select markets in July of 2014. The program has expanded to a total of 38 markets in the U.S., offering new LEAF drivers two years of no-cost public charging with the purchase or lease of the all-electric LEAF from participating LEAF-certified dealers.
The "No Charge to Charge" program is currently available in 38 of the top markets for Nissan LEAF sales, including Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Chattanooga, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland/Akron, Columbia, Columbus, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Denver, Detroit, Fresno, Houston, Indianapolis, Knoxville, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Monterey, New York, Nashville, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Portland, Ore., Providence, Raleigh-Durham, Reno, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Seattle, Washington D.C.
An improved, more powerful 30kWh battery powers an super responsive 80kW AC synchronous motor, cranking out 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. And unlike combustion engines, 100% of that torque is available the instant you press the pedal. The smooth, consistent acceleration of the new Nissan LEAF mimics the classic feel of the a finely-tuned V6 engine, making the LEAF as fun to drive as it is economical.
