Nissan highlights BiK savings on electric cars

Following the Government’s Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) announcement last week, Nissan is highlighting the benefits of driving electric that will see its Leaf model become tax-free from 6 April 2020 for a year.

The revised BiK charges see zero-emission electric vehicle tax liability for company car drivers fall from 2% to 0% for the tax year 2020-21. Rates are also reduced to 1% for 2021-2 (down from 2%), before realigning to 2% BiK from 2022 onwards.

Kalyana Sivagnanam, managing director of Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd, said: “Electric vehicles like the Nissan LEAF already offer huge benefits to company car drivers, including a quiet and relaxing drive, great performance and the very latest Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies. Add to this strong availability and minimal lead times and the LEAF offers a great opportunity for forward-thinking fleets.

“We welcome these latest tax changes, which will add a further financial incentive for company car drivers to switch to zero emissions fleet vehicles and help accelerate demand for electric cars.”

Two versions of the Nissan Leaf are available – a 40kW version and the new, extended range Leaf e+, which is capable of up to 239 miles per charge.
