Nissan partners with Chargefox to support Leaf owners

Anyone buying a Nissan Leaf will receive discounted charging rates at Chargefox fast chargers thanks to a partnership between the two companies.

Nissan Australia and Chargefox have entered a partnership that will see owners of the new Nissan Leaf given discounted rates at Chargefox-owned fast charging stations around Australia.

In a statement today, Nissan said, “Encouraged by the increasing numbers of public charge points available in Australia, Nissan – a global electric vehicle leader – hopes to improve charge point awareness and inspire their use, particularly with new Nissan LEAF owners”.

Chargefox has announced plans to open charge points connecting Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide, as well as introduce charging stations across Western Australia and Tasmania. The company claims that 90 percent of the network will be completed by the end of September, 2019.

“Already there are four fast charging stations open to the public, three in Victoria (one in Airport West, one in Euroa, north of Melbourne, and one in Barnawartha, west of Albury/Wodonga) and one in inner city Brisbane (Toombul),” Nissan said.

In addition to its partnership with Chargefox, Nissan also has a relationship with JET Charge which is its preferred EV charger provider.

“Nissan is considering every aspect of electric vehicle ownership, and reducing the cost of charging makes Nissan LEAF even more enticing,” said Nissan Australia managing director Stephen Lester.

“We are delighted to partner with Chargefox – which has a considerable network and impressive infrastructure plans – so we can keep Nissan LEAF owners on the road for longer for less.”

“JET Charge has the expertise to manage all of LEAF owner’s charging needs and ensures an easy and smooth transition to electric mobility for Australian consumers,” said Lester.
