Today, I pulled up at a light next to another Nissan LEAF. We looked at each other and smiled. I shouted, “Do you love your LEAF.” He smiled. “I love it.” Even without the longer range now available that came out this year, he and I are still happy. Time to make sense of things in the Sunshine State and enjoy those jaunts around town so much more. In Orlando, the good news is, Nissan’s “No Charge to Charge” promotion has officially arrived there.
In my opinion, the Nissan LEAF is ideal for commuters, basically anywhere. Why are you missing out on nicer drives during your commutes? Now is the time to change from that air-polluting ICE.
A NissanNews.com media release reports, “Nissan will now provide new Nissan LEAF buyers two years of complimentary public charging with the purchase or lease of the all-electric car from participating LEAF-certified dealers in Orlando.” That adds onto the $7,500 federal tax credit for electric cars and HOV lane access in the state. Nissan goes on:
Nissan now offers “No Charge to Charge” in 27 of the top markets for Nissan LEAF sales, including Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Denver, Fresno, Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Monterey, New York, Nashville, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, OR, Raleigh-Durham, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Seattle, Washington D.C.
Reasonable with the size, comfort, convenience, adept smooth drive — go test drive one. The 2016 Nissan LEAF has a starting price of $26,700** after the federal tax credit of $7,500 for the SV model and $29,290** for LEAF SL after the federal tax credit. Both the SV and SL models boast an EPA-rated range of 107 miles on a single charge. Nissan LEAF S models continue to be equipped with a 24 kWh battery with an EPA-estimated range of 84*** miles. Starting price for 2016 Nissan LEAF S grade remains $21,510** after the federal tax incentive.
Provide a kinder environment for the children and grandchildren remembering that, “unlike internal combustion engine-equipped vehicles, LEAF has no tailpipe, which means there is no emission of CO2 or other greenhouse gases.” Also, “public quick chargers can charge a LEAF from zero to 80 percent in less than 30 minutes” — if you choose to get a LEAF with quick-charging capability and have chargers where you can use them.
Consumers can find chargers eligible for “No Charge to Charge” via the LEAF EZ-Charge app for iOS or Android, or at ez-charge.com/stations.
