Nissan Leaf owners will get to save more than just fuel costs in the coming years.

The Japanese automaker has announced that it is expanding its “No Charge to Charge” promotion to 25 U.S. markets, which covers over 80 percent of Nissan Leaf sales. The no-cost public charging program will be made available with the purchase or lease of a new Nissan Leaf and will provide two years of free charging. Using the new EZ-Charge card, owners will have access to chargers with ChargePoint, Blink Network from Car Charging Group, AeroVironment and NRG eVgo.

The promotion will launch on July 1, 2014 in 10 of the top markets for the Leaf including San Francisco, Sacramento, San Diego, Seattle, Portland, Nashville, Phoenix, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Houston and Washington, DC. The cards will also be available retroactively to buyers in those markets who purchased or leased their Leaf vehicles after April 1, 2014.

After the initial 10-market rollout, Nissan will expand the program to 15 additional markets in the following year. More details on those markets will be announced at a later date.

“Nissan’s commitment to mass-market electric cars is matched by our commitment to increase charging infrastructure for LEAF owners,” said Brendan Jones, director, Nissan EV Infrastructure and Strategy. “EZ-Charge is a natural progression of our multi-pronged commitment to developing EV charging at workplace campuses, at Nissan LEAF dealerships and in the communities where LEAF drivers live and work.”
