The #EVrEVolution picks up pace as Nissan offers FREE Charging with purchase of the Well-Received LEAF, and Elon Musk announces the release of all Tesla Motors Patents to boost the growth of the Electric Vehicle Market:
"Tesla Motors was created to accelerate the advent of sustainable transport. If we clear a path to the creation of compelling electric vehicles, but then lay intellectual property landmines behind us to inhibit others, we are acting in a manner contrary to that goal. Tesla will not initiate patent lawsuits against anyone who, in good faith, wants to use our technology." - Elon Musk, 12.06.2014 - Tesla Blog
"Nissan announced the expansion of its successful "No Charge to Charge" promotion, which will provide two years of no-cost public charging with the purchase or lease of a new Nissan LEAF. In total, Nissan will launch "No Charge to Charge" in 25 U.S. markets, which are currently responsible for more than 80 percent of Nissan LEAF sales. New owners will receive an EZ-Charge card that will provide access to chargers with ChargePoint, Blink Network from Car Charging Group, AeroVironment and NRG eVgo." - Nissan
|Nissan has announced the expansion of its No Charge to Charge promotion, which provides a certain amount of free public charging with the purchase or lease of a new LEAF.|
The offer does come with a couple of strings attached. It’s valid for two years from the purchase date, and free charging will be limited to a maximum of 30 minutes at CHAdeMO DC fast chargers and one hour at Level 2 stations. Nissan’s Brendan Jones told AutoblogGreen that this should be plenty of time, as the average LEAF driver charges at a CHAdeMO station for around 16-17 minutes.
No Charge to Charge will be launched on July 1 in 10 of the top markets for LEAF sales, and will expand to 15 additional markets “during the following year.”
The promotion will use the new EZ-Charge card, a platform that offers LEAF owners access to the EV charging networks ChargePoint, Blink, AeroVironment and NRG eVgo, all with a single card.
“No Charge to Charge and EZ-Charge are a winning combination, making public charging free and easy for new LEAF buyers,” said Nissan Senior VP Fred Diaz. “Public charging is an important way to provide added range confidence to EV buyers and persuade more shoppers to join the more than 110,000 LEAF drivers around the world.”
ChargePoint, a network of over 16,500 charging locations, proudly announced its partnership with Nissan in the program. “Since we formed, ChargePoint has led the way on interoperability,” said CEO Pasquale Romano. “Everything we do is aimed at providing a seamless driving experience. The ability to offer free charging across our network is an added benefit with ChargePoint and we’re excited to provide the option to all our partners. While Nissan’s No Charge to Charge program is focused specifically on DC fast chargers, ChargePoint is committed to providing a fuel credit option across all our public stations.”
