This collaboration is set to revolutionize the way Nissan EV owners locate and use charging stations, ensuring a seamless and integrated journey. With a focus on accessibility and convenience, Nissan is providing a complimentary Zapmap Premium subscription to buyers of its new electric vehicles, including the LEAF, ARIYA, and the newly added Townstar electric van.
Seamless EV Charging with Zapmap Premium
Under this extended partnership, Nissan EV buyers will enjoy a three-year Premium subscription to Zapmap, starting from the vehicle’s registration date and valid for models registered up until December 31, 2024. This premium offering integrates directly into the vehicle’s in-car support systems through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, bringing an enhanced level of convenience to the EV charging experience. Zapmap’s platform, known for its comprehensive mapping of over 95% of the UK’s public chargers, now extends its reach into mainland Europe, covering key destinations like France, Germany, and the Netherlands.
