Significant savings on standard retail prices available on UK’s most popular electric vehicle
Members of the Smartgo workplace travel networks across the UK can now make major savings on buying or leasing a new Nissan LEAF electric car. As part of the agreement between Nissan and specialist sustainable travel consultancy, Go Travel Solutions, the vehicles will be available with significant discounts worth thousands of pounds to existing Smartgo members, on top of the existing Government grants, to encourage sustainable travel.
Recent figures published by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) show that electric car sales in the UK have risen dramatically during the past 12 months. While only around 500 electric cars were registered per month at the start of 2014, this has now risen to an average of around 2,400 per month in 2015, with the total UK light-duty electric fleet now estimated to number more than 45,000 electric vehicles.
