Nissan says it is giving away free fuel at select gas stations in five cities throughout the Northeast this summer to encourage consumers to “kick gas” for good and join the growing movement of all-electric vehicle ownership.
The Kick Gas promotion demonstrates the freedom of not having to pay for fuel – a feeling that more than 100,000 Nissan LEAF owners across the U.S. experience every day.
“Nissan pioneered the mass-market EV moment and is steadily building the EV charging infrastructure across the country. We’re continuing that tradition by encouraging consumers to ‘kick gas’ and adopt an all-electric lifestyle,” says Brian Maragno, director of Nissan EV sales and marketing. “We’re bringing the freedom of fuel-free driving that LEAF owners throughout the world know so well.”
The gas station takeover will reach five states throughout the Northeast this summer, including Massachusetts, Maryland, New York, Connecticut and New Jersey.
Consumers will be able to track which gas station Nissan has taken over by following the conversation on Nissan’s social media channels and by watching for the #KickGas hashtag. Nissan will surprise locals with free gas three times in each of the five cities.
The 2017 Nissan LEAF offers a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-estimated range of 107 miles, and it’s available in dealer showrooms today.
