Member Spotlight

Nissan joined Wisconsin Clean Cities as a member in 2016 and has been a tremendous partner in our efforts. Nissan is a global electric vehicle leader and boasts the world’s best-selling electric vehicle, the Nissan LEAF, with more than 300,000 cars sold worldwide since the launch in 2010, the first affordable electric vehicle with more than 100 miles U.S. EPA-rated driving range and the most units in operation of any battery electric vehicle in the U.S. and worldwide.

Nissan North America has invested more than $55 million in DC fast charging infrastructure in the U.S. In addition, Nissan offers new LEAF customers 24 months of complimentary charging at DC fast chargers in Nissan’s EZ Charge Network.

The 2018 LEAF – which is assembled at the Nissan plant in Smyrna, Tennessee – has been redesigned and now features:

  • 40 percent more range - 151 miles
  • 37 percent more horsepower
  • 26 percent more torque
  • E-pedal
  • Standard automatic emergency braking
  • Pro-Pilot Assist
  • Level 1/Level 2 charge cable
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto 

Nissan partnered with Wisconsin Clean Cities and Wisconsin utility companies for the REV UP Wisconsin program. The group buy program was available to all employees and customers of Alliant Energy, Madison Gas and Electric, Minnesota Power, We Energies, Wisconsin Public Service and Xcel Energy.

REV UP WISCONSIN provided thousands of dollars in discounts on the 2016 and 2017 Nissan LEAF from August 2, 2016 through September 30, 2017. Customers could also take advantage of the federal tax savings of up to $7,500.

Wisconsin Clean Cities also gave away home charging stations to two lucky customers who purchased or leased a new Nissan LEAF, courtesy of Nissan North America. The program resulted in the addition of more than 150 new Nissan LEAFs on Wisconsin roads. This helped reduce greenhouse gas emissions equal to that created by 80,000 gallons of gasoline.

Wisconsin Clean Cities member We Energies has one 2017 LEAF in their fleet and has ordered five 2018 LEAFs.

Nissan is also partnering with Wisconsin Clean Cities on the Midwest EVOLVE project, a three-year grant program of the U.S. Department of Energy presented in partnership with the American Lung Association of the Upper Midwest and eight Midwestern Clean Cities coalitions in seven states. The purpose of the project is to educate consumers, as well as public and private fleets, about the performance and environmental advantages of electric vehicles.

Through the grant program, Midwest EVOLVE and its Clean Cities partners conducts events that provide a hands-on experience to test drive a variety of locally available EVs, which helps consumers and fleets to determine the best vehicle(s) and charging options for their personal and/or fleet needs. These events and showcases provide in-depth education in a variety of conveniently located, brand-neutral settings.
