    The new package 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 chargepoint providers, Pod Point and E.ON.

    “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,” Frank Oldfield, Energy Services Manager at Nissan GB, said.

    “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.” (Related: New Nissan Qashqai goes all-hybrid)



    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. (Related: Updates for Citroen e-C4)

    “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,” Erik Fairbairn, CEO and founder, Pod Point commented.


    The new initiative was also welcomed by David Butters, Head of E.ON’s EV charging solutions division known as E.ON Drive.

    “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,” Butters said. (Related: Renault Zoe Riviera Limited Edition)

    “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.”



Over half a million examples of the award-winning Nissan Leaf have been sold globally since its launch 10 years ago. And more than 90% of European Leaf drivers say they would recommend driving an electric vehicle to family and friends.

    Two battery sizes are available on the latest Nissan Leaf — a 40kWh version, which can travel up to 168 miles on a single charge (WLTP combined), and the longer range 62kWh model, capable of driving up to 239 miles (WLTP combined).

    The 40kWh Leaf is priced from £25,995, with the longer range Leaf e+ 62kWh model from £30,445 (including Plug-in Car Grant incentive).
