MIAMI BEACH, FL -- July 11, 2014: Car Charging Group, Inc. (OTCQB: CCGI) ("CarCharging"), the largest owner, operator, and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging services announced that the company and its subsidiary, Blink Network, are participating in Nissan's "No Charge to Charge" program. The program is now live in 10 of the largest Nissan LEAF markets, which include Dallas-Ft. Worth (TX), Houston (TX), Nashville (TN), Phoenix (AZ), Portland (OR), San Diego (CA), San Francisco (CA), Sacramento (CA), Seattle (WA), and Washington (DC). The program is also offered retroactively to consumers who purchased their LEAF on or after April 1, 2014, and is anticipated to expand to at least 15 additional markets in the coming year.

"No Charge to Charge" program participants will access eligible "No Charge to Charge" charging stations with the new EZ-Charge card, which provides Nissan LEAF owners with access to five major EV charging networks, including Blink Network, CarCharging, AeroVironment, ChargePoint, and NRG eVgo.

Participants will receive 30 minutes of charging at eligible DC Fast charging stations and one hour of charging at eligible Level 2 charging stations at no fee for two years. Eligible locations include public charging locations, which do not charge parking fees. After the allotted no-fee charging period, participants may continue to fuel their EV and incur standard charging rates.

"CarCharging is delighted to collaborate with other major EV charging networks to support Nissan and new LEAF drivers with genuine interoperability, which gives drivers the ability to initiate charging sessions from various charging station manufacturers using one RFID card," said Michael D. Farkas, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of CarCharging. "Participating in programs like this benefits the industry, EV drivers, and should provide a continuous, growing revenue stream for CarCharging and Blink."

Program participants can pinpoint Blink and CarCharging's eligible EZ-Charge locations and activate their EZ-Charge cards at E-Z Charge. Drivers are encouraged to thoroughly read the materials containing the complete program participation terms and conditions distributed at registration.
