"No Charge to Charge" will launch alongside the EZ-Charge card on July 1, 2014
Nissan is looking to lure in new LEAF customers by expanding its "No Charge to Charge" promotion and offering new EZ-Charge cards.
, the new EZ-Charge cards will allow Nissan LEAF owners to access EV charging networks like ChargePoint, Blink Network from Car Charging Group, AeroVironment and NRG eVgo.
The card will provide LEAF drivers with two years of public charging with the purchase or lease of a new LEAF.
"No Charge to Charge" will launch alongside the EZ-Charge card on July 1, 2014 in 10 key LEAF markets, including San Francisco; Sacramento; San Diego; Seattle; Portland, Oregon; Nashville; Phoenix; Dallas-Ft. Worth; Houston, and Washington, DC.
Buyers in these markets can take advantage of the "No Charge to Charge" and EZ-Charge cards if they purchase their LEAF on or after April 1, 2014.
"'No Charge to Charge' and EZ-Charge are a winning combination, making public charging free and easy for new LEAF buyers," said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing, Aftersales.
Once it rolls out in the first 10 markets, Nissan will expand the promotion to 15 additional markets in the following year.
This sounds a lot like Tesla Motors'
, which offers charging for its Model S EV at no cost to the driver. The Supercharger network just recently expanded from coast to coast, relieving EV drivers of range anxiety.

RE: Proprietary charging stations?

Tesla's model works because the purpose of their Superchargers is for long distance travel, so the vast majority of them are between major cities.
Currently, something like 5% of mileage is charged through Superchargers, and I doubt it'll ever go higher than 10%. So 10% of 200k miles on electricity will have well under $1k in charging costs.
Nissan is a slightly different story, due to lower MSRP and higher reliance on charging stations for medium distance trips. But they can cut off the free charging offer whenever they want to.
