Chargemaster plugs in with Nissan GB as an official charging partner

May 18 2016 – Chargemaster, the UK's largest provider of EV charging infrastructures, has been announced as an official UK charging partner for Nissan GB and its range of 100% electric vehicles; the hugely popular Nissan LEAF and e-NV200 van.

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 3kW or 7kW Nissan-approved Chargemaster Homecharge unit. These premium units are carefully designed to make life easy for Nissan’s EV drivers, fully charging the Nissan LEAF in as little as 4.5 hours.

Once the customer’s details have been received, Chargemaster’s dedicated Homecharge team take over, promising to make the whole process as simple as possible for both the Nissan dealer and EV driver. By carefully managing the process every step of the way, Chargemaster’s specialist engineers aim to complete a trouble-free installation within two weeks of the initial enquiry.

The Chargemaster Homecharge unit is eligible for the £500 OLEV grant and available with 0% APR Representative finance over 12 months, should the customer prefer to spread their payments. 

Chargemaster was chosen as an official EV charging point supplier thanks to its high levels of customer service and customer satisfaction, together with the quality and reliability of their Homecharge units, which come with a three-year guarantee.

Edward Jones, Nissan EV Category Manager, said: “As electric vehicles become increasingly popular and our sales go from strength to strength, we’re keen to ensure our drivers have the best ownership experience possible. Home charging is a pivotal part of running an EV and the appointment of Chargemaster as an approved HCU supplier will make going electric even easier and more enjoyable.”

David Martell, Chargemaster CEO, added: “We are delighted to be an official Nissan charging partner, and believe that offering their customers a complete, trouble-free home charging solution can only help to further boost EV sales. The surge in pure-electric sales and continued success of the Nissan LEAF shows that even more motorists are now choosing to reduce their emissions and running costs.”
