Nissan appoints two EV charging partners

Chargemaster and POD Point have both been announced as official charging partners to Nissan GB.

This partnership reinforces Nissan’s aim of making electric driving accessible to all, by offering LEAF and e-NV200 owners the option of a fully installed Nissan-approved home charging unit.

Customers can purchase and arrange installation through their Nissan dealer and the home charging units offer faster charging times and are externally mounted avoiding the need for lengthy extension cables.

Edward Jones, Nissan EV category manager, said: “With electric vehicles rapidly gaining popularity in the UK, we want to make running an EV both convenient and enjoyable.

“Home charging is a pivotal part of EV ownership and the appointment of POD Point and Chargemaster as our approved HCU suppliers will make going electric even easier and more enjoyable.”

Home charge units are eligible for the £500 OLEV grant and installation can be carried out within two weeks.

POD Point is now also able to help Nissan owners get charging points installed at their place of work. EV drivers do around 30% of their charging at the workplace, and incorporating electric cars into your company fleet can reduce employee benefit in kind tax by up to 86%.
