The Low Carbon London EV lease project is actually a new project under the management of UK Power Networks. A total of 25 people were involved with the lease scheme and all of them already received their new LEAFs at the Nissan headquarters in Hertfordshire, UK. The said project decided to extend its trial period and this has made the handover very much possible. The purpose of extending the trial is to raise awareness to people about the effect of less carbon technology to the electricity network.
Under the scheme, the 25 newly electric vehicles are leased by people, which will then give support, feedback, and relevant information about the trial. Another 25 electric vehicles were reserved for companies so that they can have first hand experience using the vehicle as well as let them know how much savings they can make from using electric vehicle.
The individual users as well as the companies involved with the test were given their own charging unit for free at the location of their choice. The people who are involve in the test can also access Source London, the EV charging network capital that has a total of more than 1,300 charging points in the city. The individual will lease the unit for at least a year whereas the companies will be able to lease the unit up to two years.
The UK Power Networks spent a total of 28.3 million pounds. Its primary goal is to aid in the development of smart electricity network in the city of Britain. This project is under the leadership of UK Power Networks and is supported by different organisations such as Transport for London, Institute of Sustainability, and Greater London Authority.
Nissan is one of the leading names in vehicle industry and without a doubt; Nissan provides the best urban car that extends Low Carbon London EV test to a hundred miles at a cost 2.30 pounds per charging.
