Nissan Addresses EV Range Anxiety With Turo Car-Share Credit

With summer road trips looking far more likely for many drivers, those with only an electric car in their driveways may be worried about driving too far from home.

To address this, Nissan says that anyone who buys a new Leaf electric car will receive a $350 credit to Turo, a peer-to-peer car-sharing program. By reserving a car through Turo, those new Leaf owners will be able to rent a large van for, say, an in-town move or a comfortable sedan or SUV for a longer road trip.

Though electric cars offer greater range between battery top-offs than ever, few charge fast enough to make a long trip a viable option. The 2022 Leaf is available with enough battery capacity to give it up to 226 miles of electric range.

Nissan says it has tested a partnership with Turo in select markets over the past six months and that the program was successful enough that is now available across the U.S.

The $350 credit may be especially helpful right now given that daily rental car rates have risen dramatically due to a combination of dramatically increased demand for vehicles and unusually low inventories at companies like Hertz and Avis. Find a Nissan Leaf for sale
