Nissan Proves That Free EV Charging Helps Sell Cars

Could free access to a 240-volt and DC fast charging network persuade consumers to buy a battery-electric vehicle?

Nissan has been seeking the answer to that question through a program in Texas that offers free charging to buyers of the Nissan LEAF. At the same time, through the trial program, charging station provider NRG gets to test another business model for making public charging profitable.

The “No Charge to Charge” program—which launched October 1, 2013 and runs through March 31, 2014—gives those who buy or lease a LEAF in the Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston metro areas free access to NRG’s eVgo network of stations in those areas for 12 months.
