Zap-Map and Nissan have entered into a new partnership that will offer those who purchase a Nissan Electric vehicle, a Zap-Map Premium subscription that includes in-car support via Apple Carplay or Android Auto. 

Nissan EV customers can now receive three years of free subscription to Zap-Map’s Premium service. The subscription partnership offer applies to private and business orders for new Nissan EV passenger cars. 

Zap-Map has established the most comprehensive map and dataset of electric vehicle charging points in the UK, including live status information for over 70 per cent of charge points. 

 Zap-Map’s core features allow drivers to search, plan and pay for EV charging. On top of this, Zap-Map Premium provides a number of additional features, including the ability to access Zap-Map within the in-car dashboard through 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. 

 “Partnerships and subscriptions are a key part of Zap-Map’s growth strategy.” said Nigel Pocklington, Good Energy CEO and chairman of Zap-Map. 

“Aligning with Nissan, one of the UK’s and the world’s most popular EV manufacturers, is a fantastic step forward on this. We look forward to seeing what we can achieve together in driving the future of clean transport.” 

Nissan’s partnership with Zap-Map allows new customers to plan electric journeys quicker and drive smarter with in-car support through Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. 

Nic Thomas, marketing director, Nissan Motor GB also commented saying: “Nissan is thrilled to be partnering with Zap-Map in this exciting move towards more integrated electric motoring. 

‘Nissan have always been pioneers of the electric vehicle market and Zap-Map lead the way for charge mapping, this partnership is a logical next step as both companies continue to pave the way for intuitive electric travel.”
