Nissan will give all Nissan LEAF owners who live within 40 miles of a Source London branded charging point twelve months free subscription when they buy the 100% electric vehicle before the end of the year. This is in addition to existing savings as LEAF owners do not pay any road tax or the London congestion charge.
The Source London scheme provides a city-wide network of public charging points across the capital. Members of the scheme, which normally costs £100 to join, will need just one card to access all the charging points regardless of which borough in London they live.
The Nissan LEAF, which went on sale in the UK in March, has a range between charges of up to 110 miles, as tested over the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).
The Nissan LEAF has been designed from the start to be a purely electric-powered model and in this sense it is truly revolutionary, marking a turning point for the car industry. The electric motor is powered by a Nissan-developed laminated lithium-ion battery with an output of more than 90kW. The car has a range of more than 100 miles. The Nissan LEAF is fully equipped with features such as regenerative braking, air conditioning, satellite navigation, parking camera and advanced on-board IT and telematics systems
