The email states that this “reflects the continued success of this partnership and is another indication of the significant shift in understanding of home charging as an integral part of the electric car experience.”

The CEO and Founder of POD Point, Erik Fairbairn, commented on the news, saying: “We are very pleased to continue our close partnership with Nissan GB by providing its electric car customers with free home charging points. The ability to charge an electric car at home is a key part of the EV experience and we are excited to help Nissan ease the transition into the world of electric driving.”
