Nissan and EVgo have announced that they are providing new Nissan LEAF EV owners and lessees access to EVgo’s US charging network through a new program, “Nissan Energy Perks by EVgo.”

Nissan Energy Perks by EVgo is a new platform designed to encourage more U.S. drivers to make the switch to an electric vehicle (EV). Nissan will provide USD 250 of pre-paid charging credits with EVgo to qualifying retail customers who lease or purchase a new Nissan LEAF or LEAF PLUS in participating markets on or after November 1, 2019.

The program will provide participating retail customers with access to EVgo’s network of more than 750 public charging station locations with more than 1,200 fast chargers, as well as charging on other networks accessible through cooperative roaming agreements. As a result, new Nissan owners and lessees will have access to more than 30,000 public EV chargers, the largest of any US partnership.

“Nissan is a long-time leader in electric vehicles and this new partnership with EVgo will give Nissan LEAF owners confidence powered by tens of thousands of chargers across America,” said Aditya Jairaj, director, EV sales and marketing, Nissan North America. “Convenient access to public chargers can be incredibly helpful for LEAF owners in their day-to-day lives.

EVgo has added roaming access for EVgo customers on the ChargePoint network, providing seamless roaming to more than 28,000 Level 2 chargers and more than 300 fast chargers equipped with a CHAdeMO connector, in addition to EVgo’s industry-leading fast-charging network. EVgo has also announced roaming agreements with Electrify America and EV Connect, which, upon implementation, will further expand the number of stations accessible through Nissan Energy Perks by EVgo.

“The future of driving is electric, and EVgo is focused on delivering reliable and convenient fast charging for everyone,” said Cathy Zoi, CEO of EVgo. “Anyone who has tried an EV loves it, and EVgo and Nissan are making it easier for more drivers to make the switch to an electric vehicle.”

In August 2019, EVgo and Nissan announced a commitment to expand the charging network for EV drivers with the installation of 200 direct current fast chargers across the United States. Each of the new EVgo fast chargers will be capable of delivering 100kW and have both CHAdeMO and CCS connectors so all EV drivers can benefit from EVgo’s network expansion. The joint investment by Nissan and EVgo builds on a six-year partnership between two of the original leaders in transportation electrification in the US Nissan has installed more than 2,000 quick charge connectors across the country since 2010.
