Nissan’s very successful free-charging promotion — known as the “No Charge to Charge” promotion — was recently launched in 3 more markets, according to recent announcements from Nissan.

The new markets are quite notable ones — New York City, New York; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and Santa Barbara, California — so I wouldn’t be surprised to see sales spike (even if just a bit), with the promotion expansion.

Here’s some background for those unfamiliar with the promotion: Nissan’s “No Charge to Charge” promotion gives buyers of new LEAF electric vehicles (EVs) 2 years of complimentary access to various public EV charging stations/networks. Eligible EV charging stations can be found via the LEAF EZ-Charge app (available for both iOS and Android platforms), or via this website.

With regard to why you might want to buy a Nissan LEAF, other than this promotion… here’s an excerpt from a recent press release:

With more than 200,000 global sales and more than 89,000 in the US, Nissan LEAF is the world’s best-selling electric car. The 2016 Nissan LEAF has a starting price of $26,700 after the federal tax credit of $7,500 for the SV model and $29,290 for LEAF SL after the federal tax credit. Both the SV and SL models boast an EPA-rated range of 107 miles on a single charge. Nissan LEAF S models continue to be equipped with a 24 kWh battery with an EPA-estimated range of 84 miles. Starting price for 2016 Nissan LEAF S grade remains $21,510 after the federal tax incentive.

That said, I certainly won’t blame anyone who decides that they’d rather wait for the +200-miles-per-charge Chevy Bolt.
