"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..

Not to pile on or anything, but the petroleum industry has received an estimated $369 billion in direct subsidies since 1950, and that does not factor in the indirect subsidies for environmental damage and health impact, nor land use. Data here:

Meanwhile those who buy a EV can have a maximum credit of up to $7500 applied to their tax bill depending on circumstances. Based on actual EV sales there is impossible their subsidies come even close to federal subsidies for the petroleum industry.

And none of this gets into all the tax breaks given businesses large and small for continuing to buy vehicles they needed to buy anyways.

I love how you think that's some huge argument-winning sum. Since 1950? Oil taxes alone eclipse that EVERY YEAR!

1) Citation needed
2) You claimed no direct subsidies. There are direct, and indirect subsidies. You are wrong. You were also wrong about income taxes. You are wrong about a lot of things. It is too bad you cannot be honest enough to admit your mistakes and adjust your arguments, or even rethink your opinions. Instead I'm certain the next EV thread will contain you as usual spewing the same discredited bullshit.

Or maybe not. Maybe you will surprise me.
