100% Congestion Charge Free and 100% Electric
Hundreds of Nissan LEAF drivers will continue to make their way around the nation’s capital, safe in the knowledge their 100 per cent electric car remains unaffected by the London Congestion Charge.
While other vehicles – including hybrids – have been stopped in their tracks by a tightening of the C Charge emissions rules and the scrapping of the Greener Vehicle Discount (GVD), the British-built LEAF, the world’s bestselling all electric car, can still enjoy the freedom of the city with a charge of £10 per year rather than £10 per day.
Happily for the ever-growing army of switched-on Londoners and commuters, both the trailblazing original LEAF and the newly-launched second generation model qualify for a new Ultra Low-Emission Discount and continued total exemption from the congestion charge.
But there is some good news for drivers – the Nissan LEAF is now available from just £189 per month – less than the cost of four weeks’ C Charge payments.
And as the groundbreaking LEAF costs just two pence per mile to run, drivers making the switch can cover up to 500 miles – more than four complete circuits of the M25 – for the price of a single day’s C Charge payment.
What’s more, parking and charging the all-electric LEAF in London is a breeze. As the city now has more than 1,300 on-street charging points – the largest network in Europe.
There has been many improvements made to the LEAF which include the increased range of 124 miles compared to 109 miles – and quicker charging times. The new LEAF can be fully charged in as little as four hours when using a specialist charging point.
What’s more, the model now comes in three distinct trim levels for greater choice, while a new battery leasing option makes financing more flexible and an enhanced battery warranty gives added peace of mind.
