Nissan has gone electric!
The new way to drive.
The new way to drive.
100% Electric POWER, driving the future
Imagine a vehicle that’s cheap to run, more environmentally friendly and instantly responsive. At Nissan, we have long understood the advantages of a battery pack powering a silent electric motor. Nissan electric vehicles offer improved range and performance to make your drive as efficient as possible. The advantages of driving an electric vehicle are numerous, but to make the most of them, there are some things to consider.
Electricity creates motion (and vice versa)
Electric vehicles use electricity stored in rechargeable high-voltage batteries to power an electric motor. The motor then converts the electric energy into mechanical power to drive the vehicle.
Plugs in like any other device
Electric-vehicle batteries need to be charged with electricity supplied from a power outlet, such as a plug socket at home or a public charging station. All Nissan fully electric vehicles are delivered with a cable to charge with.
Wastes no energy
With regenerative braking, energy produced while the vehicle decelerates is converted and stored in the battery. The energy is produced when the accelerator pedal is released by the driver and the momentum of the wheels turns the electric motor. With less need to use the brakes and other mechanical parts, vehicle parts can last longer.
Plug your car into the wall from your domestic socket with your EVSE cable just like a laptop or any other device, and the battery will top-up overnight. That’s probably all you will need if you just have a short commute or you don’t use your car every day. Green technology does make your life easier.
Public charge points
There are more than 40,000 public charging stations in Europe, including over 7,000 that offer rapid charging services—and those numbers grow every day. You can download an app to help you find and plan your next charge, and benefit from the many authorities and workplaces that offer free parking while you charge.
1. Take care of your battery
Most electric vehicles won’t experience significant battery decline under normal everyday use. A simple tip to keep your battery in shape is to avoid letting the charge drop below 5%**.
2. Plan your trips
Your electric vehicle’s battery is fully sufficient for your day-to-day journeys. When going on long trips, just make sure to let it take a break and charge while you stretch your legs and grab a bite to eat.
3. Optimise your driving
Just like with a petrol car, small details can make a big difference to your driving efficiency charge. Speed, accelerating and braking behaviour, road conditions, the number of passengers and amount of luggage, tyre pressure and even the air temperature all play a role in the car's range.
1. Remote monitoring
With the NissanConnect* Services app, you can use your phone like a remote control for your car. That means you can lock or unlock the car from anywhere, know where your car is at all times, heat it up or cool it down in advance, and even set your car to recharge when off-peak electricity is available.
2. Charging points at your fingertips
The Zap-Map® app offers all the information you need at your fingertips. Find your nearest charging point on the go and feel confident all the way to your destination.
3. Extended battery warranties
The lithium-ion batteries currently used in Nissan’s electric vehicles are highly reliable. On top of after-sales services, we provide extensive 8-year or 100,000 miles warranties*** on our batteries.
Smooth and responsive drive
Electric motors provide 100% torque, which means smooth, powerful acceleration every time, with no engine vibration and near complete silence. Just push for instant power and ease off to slow down. One pedal helps you stay in control, with the brake pedal reserved for responsive braking.
Low maintenance, low running costs
The first saving you’ll notice is never having to buy petrol again. Electric vehicles also have far fewer moving parts, which reduces maintenance costs. Even wear on brake pads is reduced because electric cars use the motor to slow down, which also feeds power back to the battery.
Zero tailpipe emissions
Numerous government incentives make electric vehicles more financially appealing. You can say goodbye to tailpipe emissions and enjoy guilt free driving, knowing you’ve joined the electric revolution.
Available with a 40kWh or a powerful 62kWh battery, with sleek aerodynamics and advanced technologies* that give you a more relaxing drive on the road. Discover an all-new way of driving. You’ll be amazed by the Nissan LEAF.
The ARIYA crossover with e-4ORCE technology is the start of a new era of seamless, intuitive and adaptive experiences both onboard and offboard. All packaged in a sophisticated exterior design inspired by timeless Japanese futurism.
The UK Government offers an incentive for buyers of ultra-low emission vehicles. The scheme favours buyers of 100% electric vehicles, which means selection of the 100% electric LEAF qualifies for the maximum £2,500 governmental grant.
Owners of an electric car do not need to pay the London Congestion Charge/ULEZ (Ultra Low Emission Zone), while many other vehicles pay the full £15 per day. For somebody living outside the congestion zone but driving into it five days a week for a year, this could mean an annual saving of over £3,750.
In April 2021, the UK Government introduced new benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax rates^ for the tax year 2021/22. This means company car drivers of 100% electric vehicles pay 1% BIK. We’ve worked this out as an average saving of £3,521 in the first year^*. So, why not give yourself the equivalent of a pay rise by switching you petrol or diesel company car to a 100% electric Nissan LEAF.
Low or zero emission EVs pay less in Clean Air Zones (CAZ) in the UK and Ultra Low Emission Zone in London. Click here to find more.
Some local councils offer electric drivers free parking, reduced Residents' Parking Permits, access to bus lanes and potentially free electricity.
