"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.

RE: Its getting tough to justify not buying an EV..

Who is being punished? EV buyers are simply are being taxed less in return for spending in a way that helps his country in multiple ways, and everyone is free to take advantage of that incentive until it runs out.

You have a problem with this slippery slope? Welcome to the real world of competition, where protectionism is everywhere (truly free trade is an illusion). If you try to be too "fair", you lose the game. Letting consumers/businesses pay zero consequences for externalities just because you're too lazy to consider them is a recipe for even worse of an outsourcing issue than we already have.

We've always had implicit "buy American" strategies and subsidies for things that lower lifetime costs, because they help the economy.

You wanna help the country? Carpool or take the bus. Your EV is NOT "helping the country" in any way, shape, or form.

This fantasy you've concocted about EV's ushering in a Utopian state is part of a mental illness.

Also it's extremely disturbing that you favor taxation based on someone's activities being "helpful" or "harmful". Do you really want the IRS and Congress deciding which is which?

I have the option of bus and carpooling to work and have tried both ... that is why I do neither.

You claim that taking YOUR choice away (false assumption, but it is your claim) is bad and to remedy your (non)problem requires that everyone else choose only what you want.

What I am seeing today in your comments is pure troll...
