Nissan launches subscription service for EV drivers

Want to drive an electric for a few months? More than a few months? How about a couple years? Nissan has got you covered!

The next addition to your direct debit subscriptions may not be another streaming platform or journal app, but your electrified Nissan!

The Japanese automaker’s exciting new service brings aspiring electrified mobility to drivers with the help of a flexible subscription package, featuring a simple all-in-one monthly payment.

Nissan Subscription covers the cost of the vehicle, insurance for up to five drivers, road tax, servicing and roadside assistance, so all the customer needs to do is charge or fuel it.

Available on a choice of three electrified Nissan models from £645/mth*, customers can take the car for as little as three months, or up to two years, and even switch between models during the ownership period for maximum flexibility.

The whole process can be done online in just a few clicks and once complete, the car is secured with a fully refundable deposit equivalent to one month’s payment. The vehicle is then delivered to the customer at home on a date and time of their choosing.

Nissan Subscription is available on three of its electrified vehicles, featuring either unique e-POWER technology or a fully electric driving experience, the all-electric immensely popular and loved by families all-around, the Nissan LEAF Tekna, the all-electric coupé crossover Ariya Evolve with futuristic design, and the cheapest of the bunch, the hybrid Qashqai e-POWER N-Connecta.

Prices include 800 miles of usage per month as standard, though mileage can be tailored to customer requirements.

Of course, the prices get steeper if you subscribe for a shorter period of time, but it does offer an accessible way for curious drivers to get behind the wheel of an electric car and experience the joys of driving it.

For perspective, if you subscribe to the Qashqai for 24 months, it would cost you £645 per month. On the other end, if you were to subscribe to the Ariya, which Nissan calls its “highest level of Nissan performance, design and technology” and has a powerful 87kWh motor offering a range of up to 329 miles, for just three months, it’s going to cost you £1189 per month.

Andrew Humberstone, managing director at Nissan GB said: “We’re really excited about Nissan Subscription as it will appeal to a completely different type of customer for us and bring a whole new audience to our brand.

“There’s a new generation of motorists coming through that is looking for an entirely digital purchase experience, likes the idea of swapping their car from time to time to suit different needs, and wants to avoid the hassle of motoring admin. Nissan Subscription is perfect for them: one simple monthly payment and they’ve got everything covered.”

To sign up, customers simply create a profile and provide a scan of their driving licence before choosing their car, arranging payment and confirming a delivery date. The whole process takes just a few clicks and is run in partnership with Bipi Mobility UK Limited.
