Nissan joins Tesla with some free charging
Just noticed this interesting tidbit over @ Green Car Reports report about their new ez charge card which let’s you charge on multiple charging networks:
“Nissan will also extend its “No Charge To Charge” promotion, under which new Nissan Leaf buyers get two years of free public charging, throughout the entire EZ Charge network.
Buyers who purchase a Nissan Leaf between April 1 and July 1 this year will be retroactively offered both the free-charging promotion and the EZ Charge network card.
NRG eVgo will manage the EZ Charge network together with the other partners.”
Funny, didn’t we just suggest this in a recent blog post? Quoting ourselves here:
“Automakers might think about owning their own quick charging network, perhaps collectively through a consortium and add a cost to the vehicle for free lifetime quick charging for your customers? This would be a great area to compete if not on the vehicle itself, but the infrastructure available.”
