"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.

Because there is a net benefit to society. It's stupid to waste capital and/or time to implement such a payment system.

Do you know why almost everyone agrees that STUPID PEOPLE should still have freedom of speech? It's because freedom of speech is a principle, and defending the stupidest person's freedom of speech demonstrates one's allegiance to the principle.

This is a complete fail of a post.

Houses are paid for once. Cellphones and internet usage are tracked electronically. There's negligible overhead. Entertainment has low priority in societal benefit, and also has low payment overhead.

How do you charge for road usage? Everyone has a transponder? Every car has a GPS tracker which didn't even exist over the last century? A toll bridge at every intersection, wasting your time for payment?

That difference is the net benefit I refer to. You'd triple the cost of the system and cause huge harm to the economy to privatize all roads. This doesn't exist with any of your pathetic examples.
