Looking to go green, and you want to start off with that vehicle in your garage? You surely would do well to check out our Nissan LEAF review if this particular model has stoked your interest. The Japanese automaker has teamed up with their zero-emissions mobility partner in the Netherlands known as The New Motion, where the latter has agreed to deliver charging solutions for owners of the electric-powered LEAF.
To cut to the chase, The New Motion will install a Nissan-certified charging station at your home – if you are a LEAF owner, of course, for just €995 (that is $1,408 no thanks to the weak dollar), which is inclusive of VAT. According to Nissan, the 16-amp chargers is capable of fully juicing up the LEAF from empty in under eight hours.
Not only that, LEAF owners also have the luxury to access The New Motion’s network of quick-charge stations that are being installed throughout the country. At the moment, there are just five quick-charge points that are operational, although before 2012 is over, 25 more points are said to be in the pipeline.
