Nissan is set to host a series of information and educational events across its dealer network from June 4-16 to provide car buyers and local businesses with everything they need to know to make the switch to zero emissions EV driving.
“We are at an inflection point for EV sales and motorists clearly understand the environmental benefits of switching to EV driving, although the decision to switch often comes with many questions around cost savings, battery life, range and charging,” explained Neil O’Sullivan, Head of Sales and Business Development at Nissan Ireland.
“We have organised The Nissan Electric Dealer Event across our dealer network to share our expertise as EV pioneers and to provide customers with a wider opportunity to meet their local Nissan dealer, to put any and all questions that they may have about driving electric to them and to test drive the 100 per cent electric Nissan Leaf,” he added.
The Nissan Leaf is Ireland’s best-selling EV and offers a range of almost 300km on a single charge.
Nissan’s EV experts will be on hand to explain the many Government incentives that are currently available to EV drivers, including the SEAI purchase grant of €5,000, the additional €7,000 SEAI grant for taxi drivers, reduced road tolls and the convenience of free on-street parking.
In addition, with the introduction of zero per cent BIK and accelerated capital allowances, there are very significant savings to be had for businesses by switching to electric which a lot of people are not yet familiar with. Local businesses attending the events at their local Nissan dealership will gain a better understanding of the incentives that apply and the significant scale of savings available for their businesses and employees by switching to the 100 per cent electric Nissan Leaf.
Showroom visitors can also learn about the soon to be launched 62kWh Nissan Leaf and the increased 385km range that it offers. The Nissan Leaf is packed with technology and also features the Nissan e-Pedal function which allows drivers to start, accelerate, brake and to bring the car to a stop with the throttle pedal.
