Just in time for the first deliveries of the 2018 Nissan LEAF in Canada, the auto major announced a new partnership with FLO, the provider of charging ecosystem in Canada. The FLO Home charging station and the FLO Network are recommended by Nissan Canada as the prime charging solutions for owners of the fully-electric LEAF. This agreement follows a one-year pilot project in Quebec.
Nissan LEAF buyers will be able to purchase the FLO Home charging station directly from participating dealerships across Canada along with their new vehicle. In addition, FLO will be offering new LEAF owners a free membership card to access its country-wide charging network.
With their FLO Network card, LEAF owners will also be able to rely on Canada's largest EV charging network to power up their LEAF when travelling. FLO network membership provides drivers with access to thousands of public charging stations from coast to coast, including those of FLO's partner networks, the Electric Circuit (Quebec) and eCharge Network (New Brunswick).
“The new 2018 Nissan LEAF offers more range at 242 kilometres, Nissan's most advanced technology features like e-Pedal and ProPILOT Assist, dynamic new design — and all at great value with a list of key EV features now fitted as standard. Therefore, we anticipate a considerable surge in our EV business moving forward.
“New and existing LEAF customers will receive peace of mind for reliable charging options through our partnership with FLO, which is a pioneer in its own right for allowing EV drivers to push beyond their boundaries,” says Joni Paiva, president of Nissan Canada.
