UK makes it easy to own, run an electric car

UK Electric mobility has taken another huge leap forward, thanks to significant investment in the UK’s charging network that will make it easier than ever to own and run an electric car.

As part of the £37-million (Bt1.6 billion) scheme, the UK government has announced that it would contribute 75 per cent to the cost of an installed charger at a home address anywhere in the United Kingdom. Besides the home-charging bonus, the government has announced some other major benefits for the entire charging network.

Working with local authorities, the new scheme will see a 75-per-cent contribution to the cost of installing public chargers such as rapid chargers – which can charge a LEAF to 80 per cent in just 30 minutes – and other on-street public chargers. In addition, the government is contributing 75 per cent towards the cost of installing charging points at railway stations, while any public sector organisation – such as the police, NHS, local government – wanting an on-site charging point will now have the installation carried out for free.

The announcement comes with production of the all-electric Nissan LEAF and a new lithium-ion battery plant set for launch at the company’s record-breaking Sunderland Plant this spring.

“We are at a crossroads in personal mobility,” said John Martin, Nissan’s senior vice president for manufacturing in Europe. “Nissan is proudly pioneering zero-emission technology through our UK operations and we are delighted that the UK government is showing it shares our commitment to the transport of the future.”
