Leaf drivers in London can power up for free

Charging a Nissan Leaf in London has become simpler and cheaper with the launch of the Source London charging network and to mark the start of the initiative, Nissan is providing Leaf owners across the capital with access the charging points for free.

In support of the scheme, launched by Mayor Boris Johnson, Nissan will give all Leaf owners who live within 40 miles of Source London branded charging point 12 months free subscription when they buy the 100% electric vehicle before the end of the year.

The Source London scheme provides a city-wide network of public charging points across the capital. A network of over 1,300 charging points will be installed by the end of 2013 in residential streets, supermarket and public car parks, shopping and leisure centres.

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.

Paul Willcox, managing director of Nissan Motor (GB), said: "Nissan fully supports the Mayor's agenda to promote zero carbon emission vehicles in London, which is why we are providing free access to the network for all Leaf owners across the capital."
