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.
How does it all work?
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.
The electric family car
The electric crossover
The 5 to 7 seat electric family car
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.
Home AC charger
The best place to charge your electric vehicle at home is using a dedicated AC home charger. With power outputs ranging from 3kW to 22kW, depending on your electricity supply and vehicle capability, AC home chargers allow much faster charging times than using a 3-pin socket. Furthermore, the Government EV Home Charge Scheme provides a grant of up to £350 towards a home charger installation, subject to eligibility. Further details can be found at:
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.
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%**.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Nissan have chosen to partner with E.ON Drive, to support their customers in going electric. E.ON Drive offer a choice of quality chargers suitable for new and approved used EVs.
Whether you are buying a Nissan Finance charger with standard installation option, spreading your costs over up to 4 years with your EV lease or if you choose to pay upfront directly with E.ON, you will in a few simple steps, be up and running and enjoying the benefits of going electric.
Whichever purchase option you have chosen, Marshall Nissan will pass on your contact details to E.ON.
