With all of today’s uncertainties, we’re all on the lookout for ways to be more cost-conscious — and the good news is that driving an electric vehicle (EV) is not only good for the environment, it can also be beneficial for your budget. In some places, driving an EV is just as cost-efficient — if not more — than driving a gas-powered vehicle, in large part because of innovations in lithium-ion batteries and electric motors in EVs like the Nissan LEAF.
Now in its second generation, the all-new Nissan LEAF boasts more power and greater range per charge, which means you get more distance for less money. But just how much does it cost to charge a Nissan LEAF?
At EVgo, we want to inform all new and prospective LEAF owners just how wallet-friendly this all-electric EV is. With this guide, you’ll learn how much it costs to charge your Nissan LEAF in public and why utilizing EVgo’s network of public fast charging stations is not only affordable and convenient but is also a premium charging experience, too.
The Benefits of Fast Charging With EVgo
When charging your Nissan LEAF at home, it can take hours to reach its charging capacity — especially using a Level 1 or Level 2 charger. But with EVgo, our selection of convenient and accessible EV public fast charging stations across the country can get your LEAF charged in minutes, not hours. Located across 34 states and in 66 major metropolitan markets, we have the right EV chargers in all the right places.
Enjoy a Premium EV Charging Experience With EVgo
At EVgo, our goal is to provide you with speed and convenience when you need to charge your Nissan LEAF. But, to achieve fast charging times across a large network of EV charging stations, it requires advanced processes, industries, and technological systems working together seamlessly.
With collaborative efforts between charging networks, government, utility networks, and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), we’re able to align with key stakeholders to invest in a premium charging experience, providing you with:
New, high-powered charging station siting and construction in key areas
Utility upgrades and charging station maintenance
As our EV fast charging network and foundational partnerships continue to grow, we are working towards an EV charging experience that’s more convenient and cost-efficient than getting gas.
EVgo EV Charging Pricing
Depending on where you live, our charging stations have different rates to reflect local electricity prices — giving you a cost-effective solution to charge your Nissan LEAF.
EV Charging Option #1: EVgo Pay as You Go
If you’d like to pay as you go with no commitment required, you can utilize our fast chargers for 45-minute sessions at your region’s rate per minute. In addition, you can use our Level 2 chargers for an hourly fee.
EV Charging Option #2: EVgo Membership
If you charge at an EVgo station once or more per month, our membership program is your most wallet-friendly option. With it, you can use our EVgo fast chargers for 45-minute sessions (from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.) and 60-minute sessions (from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.) at less than your region’s standard rate per minute. You can also charge with our Level 2 chargers for an hourly fee.
No matter which plan you choose, EVgo doesn’t charge session fees, service fees for partner roaming, or setup and termination fees!
