NEW NISSAN ‘SWITCH SCHEME’ WANTS DRIVERS TO SWAP THEIR OLDER VEHICLES AND TURN ON TO ALL-ELECTRIC
Nissan is offering customers up to £2,000 plus trade-in value on their old vehicle to ‘switch’ into a 100% electric, zero-emission Nissan LEAF – the UK’s best-selling electric car – for as little as £100 a month.
The Nissan Switch Scheme, launched today, gives additional support to owners of cars and LCVs with pre-Euro V engines, to help them replace their vehicle with a zero-emission, 100% electric LEAF, or one of Nissan’s efficient range of new passenger cars.
From 1st to 30th September, drivers of eligible vehicles registered before the end of 2009 with a pre-Euro V engine can trade-in their car or LCV at participating Nissan dealerships to receive up to £5,000, plus trade-in value for their current car, off a new Nissan model. Or they can receive up to £2,000 plus vehicle trade-in value off an approved-used Nissan LEAF 24kWh.
Thanks to the Switch Scheme, Nissan LEAF ownership has never been more accessible. Payments on a three-year 3.9% APR PCP can be lower than £100 a month for a used LEAF 24kWh with trade-in value and Nissan Switch Scheme contribution. A free Home Charging Unit worth £279 is also provided in the offer.
The Nissan LEAF 24kWh delivers a driving range of up to 124miles (NEDC) with running costs from just 2p a mile*. Other benefits to owning an all-electric vehicle include £0 annual VED, lower maintenance costs compared to combustion-engine vehicles, and London Congestion Charge exemption. For somebody living outside the congestion zone but driving into it five days a week, each week of the year, this could mean an annual saving of over £2,500.
