Why you should drive a Nissan electric car
Japanese car manufacturer Nissan have introduced several electric cars to the market, the most famous of all being the well-known Nissan Leaf. The Leaf celebrated 12 years in 2022, making it the world’s first mass market electric vehicle selling over 400,000 cars globally.
Nissan is known for producing dependable cars, with unique sporty styling at affordable prices. So, if you’re looking for all the benefits of an EV, but with a smaller price tag, then a Nissan might be exactly what you need.
Our range of Nissan electric cars
How long has Nissan been producing EVs?
Nissan originally started in 1911 and launched their first electric car, the ‘Tama’ in 1947. It had a range of 60 miles and was mostly used by taxi drivers. But soon after the oil supply stabilised in the 50’s the Tama was discontinued.
Nissan continued to research into EVs, but it wasn’t until the Nissan Leaf was launched in 2010 that Nissan really made a name for themselves in the EV scene. The Leaf really brought EVs into the mainstream.
Today, they sell three electric vehicles, with more on the horizon as they aim to be 100% electric by the early 2030’s.
Why driving an EV is great
There are plenty of reasons why driving an electric car is great, and benefits not only you as the driver, but also the environment.
While Nissan produces great petrol and diesel cars, the benefits of an EV mean they’re the perfect choice for drivers looking to make the switch to electric:
- There are far fewer moving parts in an EV, which means maintaining them is cheaper and there’s less that can potentially go wrong
- Charging an EV is quick and simple – by using a rapid charge point, you can charge your EV’s battery to 80% in as little as 20 minutes
- EVs are far kinder to the environment, and by using green energy to charge the battery they can be completely carbon neutral after manufacture
- Compared to petrol and diesel, the cost of charging an EV is considerably cheaper than a tank of fuel
