Nissan has officially established their No Charge to Charge program in New York, Philadelphia and Santa Barbara, which is certain to make local LEAF customers happy.
It is also providing LEAF buyers with two years of complimentary public charging as long as they purchase the all-electric car from LEAF-certified dealers in each of those markets. Consumers can find which chargers are eligible for “No Charge to Charge” via the LEAF EZ-Charge app, available for iOS & Android.
The Japanese automaker has sold more than 89,000 LEAFs in the US (200,000 globally), which makes this the world’s best-selling electric car. For the 2016MY, customers need to pay $26,700 for the SV model (after the federal tax credit of $7,500) and $29,290 for the SL spec.
Both versions have an EPA-rated range of 107 miles (172 km) on a single charge, whereas LEAF S models continue to be powered by a 24 kWh battery with an EPA-estimated range of 84 miles (135 km). While it may not sound groundbreaking anymore, it’s still enough for the vast majority of commuters.
After the federal tax incentive, the starting price for the 2016 Nissan LEAF S remains $21,510, which is about as much as you’d pay for a 2016 1.8T Volkswagen Golf in the US.
As long as driving dynamics and “regular car looks” aren’t you’re main priorities when behind the wheel, the LEAF remains an excellently clever way to get from point A to point B.
