However, all new Los Angeles LEAF buyers who purchased or leased their vehicle on or after July 1, 2014 (they will receive entry into the “No Charge to Charge” program retroactively) can celebrate.
Joining “No Charge to Charge” enable two years of no-cost public charging at hundreds of stations (including DC fast chargers) - details described here.
"No Charge to Charge" takes advantage of the new EZ-Charge card, a first-of-its-kind card that offers Nissan LEAF owners access to five leading EV charging networks with a single card. New owners will receive an EZ-Charge card that will provide access to chargers with ChargePoint, Blink, CarCharging, AeroVironment and NRG eVgo. (Note: not all chargers available with the EZ-Charge card are part of “No Charge to Charge.”)
Editor's Note: Because the "No Charge to Charge" program and the "EZ-Charge" universal card program can be easily confused, we feel we should note they are indeed separate; and as such not all ChargePoint stations participate in the free charging scheme ~ 60of their station currently operate with no associated fees.
Brendan Jones, director, Nissan Electric Vehicle Sales and Infrastructure stated:
"Los Angeles has long been one of the world’s top markets for electric car sales. Adding free access to public fast charging in the LA market gives us a competitive edge over other vehicles, regardless of their fuel source."
