DALLAS, Sept. 26, 2013

DALLAS, Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Driving the all-electric Nissan LEAF
means never having to buy gas. Now, thanks to the new "No Charge to Charge"
program, offered by Nissan and NRG eVgo, new buyers and lessees of the
all-electric Nissan LEAF in the Dallas-Fort Worth and greater Houston areas
will have unlimited access to the eVgo network for public charging stations
for their first year of ownership at no cost.



Beginning in October, customers who lease or purchase a new Nissan LEAF in the
Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston markets will receive one year of complimentary
access to eVgo's comprehensive Freedom Station ^ ® charging network, including
23 locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and 17 in the greater Houston
area. Also, included as part of the eVgo network, is charging at Park N' Fly
locations at DFW and IAH airports.

"Nissan LEAF owners who already subscribe to NRG eVgo's Freedom Station
network rave about the convenience and increased range confidence it
provides," said Erik Gottfried, Nissan's director of EV Sales and Marketing.
"Adding one of the country's most innovative charging plans to the world's
best-selling electric car is a clear win for Nissan LEAF buyers."

Dallas-Fort Worth is one of the fastest growing markets in the country for
Nissan LEAF sales, with deliveries up 500 percent so far in 2013 as compared
to 2012. The presence of strong public infrastructure with eVgo, as well as
major technology companies and strong word-of-mouth referrals from existing
owners has fuelled the rapid rise in LEAF sales.

"NRG eVgo has created a comprehensive suite of electric vehicle charging
products to support the growing number of EVs and to address EV drivers' need
to charge both at home as well as on the road," said Jack Cannata, director of
marketing for NRG eVgo. "With access to our well-placed charging stations
across the Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston metro areas, Nissan LEAF drivers can
really maximize their use of the vehicle."

eVgo Freedom Station sites, conveniently located along major roadways, offer
electric car drivers DC fast charging and Level 2 charging. DC fast chargers
can deliver up to an 80% charge in less than 30 minutes. Level 2 chargers
deliver range at a rate of 12 – 25 miles per hour. Most sites are available
24/7 and are positioned near retail stores as well as restaurants to provide
the option to shop or eat while charging.

Nissan will offer "No Charge to Charge" with acquisitions of the Nissan LEAF
made between October 1, 2013 and March 31, 2014 at all certified Nissan LEAF
dealers in the Dallas-Fort Worth and greater Houston area markets.
