"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. 
According to Nissan News, 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' Supercharger network, 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.

What EV's? There's basically two viable EV's on the market, and one is priced so wildly out of reach of the general public, it might as well be off the list.

So the Nissan Left makes the best financial sense for everyone?

Nissan Leaf, Chevy Spark EV, Fiat 500e (California only), BMW i3 (oddly reasonably priced for a BMW), Ford Focus EV, and half a dozen more headed to market. Personally the Spark EV is the one that is the no brainer for me financially. The Leaf and Focus would also make financial sense, the Focus EV especially on a lease which runs only $175/month.

What if none of those appeal to me or meet my needs? You just aren't getting the point here.

That looks like a big list of loss-leaders foisted on the market due to regulations and manipulation.

And nobody I know would be caught dead in a Spark EV.

Why do you think its all about you? No one is taking away your car. There are lots of vehicles on the market that I have no interest in either but I do not go into forum threads about those cars and make nonsensical off-topic posts about why they don't serve my needs. If you don't like it, don't buy it. No one here will care.

My point in this thread was to point out that from a financial point of view, for urban and surburban dwellers, these cars have passed the tipping point where they are economic no-brainers.

Whether they are personally great cars for Reclaimer77, or whether your friends would be caught dead in one, or really any of the other odd issues you've chosen to take with my statement, all are irrelevant to my point. My point is only that right now buying a Spark EV, Leaf, or a couple of the others would save me money every month, and the vast majority of other urban and suburban drivers, EVEN if we factor in the cost of having a payment! That's great news. We can now save money thanks to advances in technology.
