Owning and driving a zero emission electric vehicle entitles you to governmental grants and discounts.
£3,000 PLUG-IN CAR GRANT
The UK Government offers an incentive for buyers of ultra low emissions Vehicles. The scheme favours buyers of 100% electric vehicles, which means the 100% electric LEAF qualifies for the maximum £3,000 governmental grant.*
QUALIFY FOR 100% DISCOUNT ON THE LONDON CONGESTION CHARGE
Owners of a Nissan LEAF do not need to pay the London Congestion Charge, while many other vehicles pay the full £11.50 per day.** 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.**
LIVE RICHER WITH 0% BIK FOR EV COMPANY CAR DRIVERS
In April 2020, the UK Government introduced new benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax rates for the tax year 2020/21. This means company car drivers of 100% electric vehicles pay 0% BIK. We’ve worked this out as an average saving of £3,552 in the first year***. So, why not give yourself the equivalent of a pay rise by switching your petrol or diesel company car to a 100% electric Nissan LEAF.
