NISSAN has extended its long-term partnership with charge point mapping service Zapmap which means most purchasers of new Nissan EVs will continue to be provided with a free premium subscription that includes in-car support via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
For private, business and Motability purchasers of LEAF and ARIYA, a three-year Premium subscription will be provided from the date of the vehicle’s registration. The offer applies to models registered up to and including December 31st 2024 – and now also includes the Townstar electric van.
For almost a decade, Zapmap has delivered the most comprehensive map and dataset of electric vehicle charging points in the UK, displaying 95% of public chargers in its app and desktop map, including live status information for over 70% of public charge points.
Zapmap recently began mapping charge points in mainland Europe. Electric car drivers can now use the app and desktop map to search and filter for certain charge points in France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.
Its core features allow drivers to search, plan and pay for EV charging, while Zapmap Premium provides a number of additional benefits – such as unlimited filters and route plans when using the app to search for chargers and plan journeys – as well as the ability to access Zapmap within the in-car dashboard via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
This means drivers can find a suitable charger quickly and easily by viewing live charge point data, accessing route plans, and linking to a navigation app for turn-by-turn directions.
