Nissan Bringing Promotion to 5 Cities

By Bea Elle

This summer, Nissan is giving away free fuel at select gas stations in five cities throughout the Northeast to encourage consumers to “Kick Gas” for good and join a growing movement of all-electric vehicle ownership. The promotion demonstrates the freedom of not having to pay for fuel, a feeling that over 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,” said Brian Maragno, director, 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:

  • Connecticut
  • Maryland
  • Massachusetts
  • New Jersey
  • New York

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. Consumers who receive “fuel freedom” from Nissan are encouraged to join the conversation by posting socially about their experience with Nissan and using the #KickGas hashtag.”

Nissan is proud to be one of the first automakers dedicated to furthering the adoption of electric vehicles. The 2017 Nissan LEAF offers an EPA-estimated range of 1,071 miles, and it’s available in dealer showrooms.
