Electric car buyers can now get their vehicle, home charger and standard home installation from Nissan dealerships nationwide in a new finance offer with a single monthly payment.
Designed for ultimate customer convenience, it is being offered by Nissan dealers as part of a typical three or four year HP (Hire Purchase) or PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) car finance agreement on Nissan LEAF and e-NV200 models.
The offer is the result of Nissan working separately with two leading EV charge point providers, Pod Point and E.ON.
Frank Oldfield, Energy Services Manager at Nissan GB, said: “Wherever possible, we want to try and reduce the complexity for customers new to electric motoring and make their transition to zero emissions motoring as easy as possible.
“With this Nissan finance package, you can secure a fantastic electric car, choose from a range of 7kW chargers and have it efficiently installed at home, all for one single monthly payment.”
Nissan is working separately with two of the UK’s leading charging point suppliers, Pod Point and E.ON, to enable customers to choose a dedicated home charger and have it installed, as part of their electric vehicle finance agreement.
A home charger uses dedicated EV charging technology to reduce charging times (compared to charging via a regular 3-pin domestic energy supply socket) and can also manage when and for how long your electric vehicle is charged. This can be more cost efficient, by ensuring the vehicle is charged at the optimum time for you or when electricity costs are lower, overnight, for example.
Erik Fairbairn, CEO and founder, Pod Point commented: “We are delighted to be working with Nissan and our continued partnership is testament to the reliability and ease of use of Pod Point’s smart charging points as well as our dedication to outstanding customer service.”
David Butters, Head of E.ON’s EV charging solutions division known as E.ON Drive, said: “As electric vehicles become the new normal in our transition to a zero-carbon future, we need to ensure drivers can recharge their batteries in the way most convenient to them. We’re already working to provide our customers with personalised and sustainable energy solutions that meet their needs, and we’re now delighted to be able to offer Nissan drivers a home EV charger to keep them on the road to cleaner air and a more sustainable future.”
