Get ready for a giant 'NISSAN' logo in your city.

Looking forward to SimCity DLC? Well, the first of it is here and it may leave a bit of a sour taste in your mouth: it’s an advertisement for Nissan’s LEAF-brand electric cars.
The LEAF charging station “provides happiness to the Sims that use it and a onetime wave of happiness to the nearby businesses,” writes EA.
“Need another bonus? It produces no sewage or garbage. That’s right! Green indeed.”
How does it all work? “Plopping down the Nissan Leaf Charging Station will add happiness to nearby buildings. Adding the Charging Station will not take power, water or workers away from your city. Zoom in to the streets of cities and players will start seeing a percentage of their Sims from all wealth classes driving the electric vehicles.”
As PC Gamer points out, this is essentially free DLC that just… makes everything around it better? All the time? For no cost at all — other than having to see a giant ‘NISSAN’ logo every time you scroll across your city, of course.
