LEAF owners will get a $350 Turo credit to "own the car they want and book the car they need."
Why? "Nissan understands our LEAF customers and we know that there are times when they may need a different vehicle for a specific occasion," according to the automakers director of EV marketing and sales.
There's a good chance a similar program could be rolling out to Ariya owners.

New Nissan LEAF buyers can receive a $350 free credit on Turo
– Nissan and Turo are offering new U.S. Nissan LEAF
buyers the flexibility to "own the car they want and book the car they need," by offering a $350 credit on Turo1 with the purchase or lease of a new LEAF electric vehicle.
The nationwide promotion allows new LEAF owners the flexibility to access thousands of vehicles listed on the Turo platform, one of the world's leading peer-to-peer car sharing marketplace, when they need it. Nissan and Turo piloted this program with select Nissan Dealers in Denver, Phoenix, and Washington D.C. over the last six months.
"Nissan understands our LEAF customers and we know that there are times when they may need a different vehicle for a specific occasion," said Aditya Jairaj, director, EV marketing and sales strategy, Nissan U.S. "With this offer, LEAF owners get a great electric vehicle that suits their everyday driving, but if they want a different vehicle to help move or take a large family on a road trip, Nissan and Turo are giving them options."
This program follows a Nissan Experience Test Drive pilot that ran in 2019, where consumers could book an extended test drive of a Nissan vehicle on Turo.
