UK: Nissan celebrates special anniversary and increases charging points

THE all-electric Nissan LEAF, left, celebrates a milestone this week with it being a year since the first car was delivered to a customer.

In the 12 months since a further 695 cars have been delivered throughout the UK, below what the company anticipated and underlining the consumer resistance to battery-powered transport.

However, the manufacturer is determined to press ahead with the concept. Since deliveries started last March, Nissan has expanded the LEAF dealer network from 26 to 32 dealerships and plans are underway to increase this to 150 by the end of 2012. Nissan is currently working with partners to create a ‘charging pathway’ across the UK motorway network using quick chargers that the company is donating. These chargers can charge the advanced lithium ion batteries in Nissan LEAF from empty to 80 per cent capacity in just 30 minutes.
