“No Charge to Charge” offers free-charging from participating public networks for free for the first two years of LEAF ownership.

"Nissan introduced "No Charge to Charge" to the Badger State earlier this year, launching in Milwaukee. The 2016 Nissan LEAF gets up to 107 miles of range, which would make a trip from Madison to Milwaukee feasible on just one charge.

The "No Charge to Charge" promotion supports Nissan's recent commitment to provide numerous convenient charging stations across Wisconsin that are compatible with a range of EVs. This inclusive implementation, named "Infrastructure for All," incorporates two types of charging ports, which means that each new fast-charging station coming online will include both CHAdeMO and SAE Combo connectors.

Fast chargers are capable of charging LEAF battery packs from empty to 80 percent in approximately 30 minutes. Today, about 90 percent of LEAF owners live in cities covered by "No Charge to Charge," including cities such as Chicago, Indianapolis, Cleveland and Minneapolis."

Brian Maragno, director, Nissan EV Sales and Marketing said:

"As a pioneer in bringing affordable EVs to the mass market, Nissan understands that EV owners want to be confident in their ability to drive longer distances and this program does just that. ‘No Charge to Charge' makes driving an EV easier than ever, while also offering no-cost public charging, saving the average LEAF owner up to $1,000 in charging costs over the 24-month program."
