Imagine a vehicle that’s cheap to run, more environmentally friendly and instantly responsive. At Nissan, we have long understood the advantages of a battery pack powering a silent electric motor. Nissan electric vehicles offer improved range and performance to make your drive as efficient as possible. The advantages of driving an electric vehicle are numerous, but to make the most of them, there are some things to consider.
Electricity creates motion (and vice versa)
Electric vehicles use electricity stored in rechargeable high-voltage batteries to power an electric motor. The motor then converts the electric energy into mechanical power to drive the vehicle.
Plugs in like any other device
With regenerative braking, the energy produced while the vehicle decelerates is converted and stored in the battery. The energy is produced when the driver releases the accelerator pedal and the momentum of the wheels turns the electric motor. Vehicle parts can last longer with less need to use the brakes and other mechanical parts.

The 100% electric family car.
Available with a 39 kWh or a powerful 59 kWh battery, with sleek aerodynamics and advanced technologies that give you more confidence on the road. Discover an all-new way of driving. You’ll be amazed by the Nissan LEAF.
The 100% electric coupe crossover
The ARIYA crossover with e-4ORCE technology is the start of a new era of seamless, intuitive and adaptive experiences both onboard and offboard. All packaged in a sophisticated exterior design, inspired by timeless Japanese futurism.
Plug your car into the wall from your domestic socket with your EVSE cable just like a laptop or any other device, and the battery will top-up overnight. That’s probably all you will need if you just have a short commute or you don’t use your car every day. Green technology does make your life easier.
Home AC Charger
The best place to charge your electric vehicle at home is using a dedicated AC home charger. With power outputs ranging from 3kW to 22kW, depending on your electricity supply and vehicle capability, AC home chargers allow much faster charging times than using a 3-pin socket.
Furthermore, the Government EV chargepoint scheme provides a grant of up to £350 towards an EV chargepoint installation, subject to eligibility.
Public Charge Points
There are more than 40,000 public charging stations in Europe, including over 7,000 that offer rapid charging services—and those numbers grow every day. You can download an app to help you find and plan your next charge, and benefit from the many authorities and workplaces that offer free parking while you charge.
Smooth and responsive drive
Electric motors provide 100% torque, which means smooth, powerful acceleration every time, with no engine vibration and near complete silence. Just push for instant power and ease off to slow down. One pedal helps you stay in control, with the brake pedal reserved for responsive braking.
Low maintenance & low running costs
The first saving you’ll notice is never having to buy petrol again. 100% electric vehicles also have far fewer moving parts, which reduces maintenance costs. Even wear on brake pads is reduced because electric cars use the motor to slow down, which also feeds power back to the battery.
Zero tailpipe emissions
Numerous government incentives make electric vehicles more financially appealing. You can say goodbye to tailpipe emissions and enjoy guilt free driving, knowing you’ve joined the electric revolution.
