"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.

Even as dirty as coal plants typically are, centralized energy production is inherently far less polluting than millions of small combustion engines with their less effective pollution controls. Also, large areas of the country are not dependent on coal, for instance Washington State is 85% nuclear and hydro powered, with only one coal plant providing power to the state.

The cost to society, as you point out, is far lower for an EV than a gasoline powered car, which is the point of the rebate. More questionable to me are the incentives that permit EV's into carpool lanes which seems superfluous and besides the point.

Ultimately though, yes for an individual family they can include the subsidy when making the decision. At the end of the day their own bank account is what matters to them. And over the life of the car they are likely still paying back more than the $7500 that they borrowed from society to buy the car.
