Nissan EV Cost
Plug into the perks
Breeze past the pumps and keep going. Electric vehicles save you more than just gas money. Discover all the benefits that come with an EV, and learn why it’s one of the smartest investments you can make.
What’s in it for you
Going electric may be an investment, but the savings are well worth it. On top of reducing emissions and saving on gas, you’ll pay less for maintenance. Plus, you can take advantage of government incentives depending on where you live. If you happen to drive a Nissan ARIYA®, you can even keep an eye on home energy consumption while you’re out. []
Stop spending on gas
Driving an EV means producing zero tailpipe emissions – and spending zero dollars on gas. While there are certain energy costs associated with charging an EV at home, they’re often lower than the amount you’d be paying at the pumps. To curb those costs even further, you can charge overnight or on weekends, when electricity typically costs less. []
Save on maintenance
When you own an electric vehicle, there are fewer moving parts to think about. Although EVs still require standard service and maintenance, there’s no combustion engine or traditional gearbox to keep up. That means you won’t be replacing engine fluid or changing the oil. They also use their motor to slow down, which helps preserve your brake pads. []
Jump on the incentives
As part of a global effort to reduce carbon emissions, the Canadian Federal government is offering a purchase incentive of up to $5,000 to people who buy an EV. Plus, there are provincial EV incentives you can take advantage of if you live in Québec or British Columbia. To learn more about these, visit the ChargeHub online portal. []
Do electric cars cost more than gas cars?
No, that’s just a myth. While owning an EV has certain initial costs, what you save on gas and maintenance is well worth it. You can also benefit from government purchase incentives. []
Invest in an EV
Rack up the benefits
Save up to $15,000 on ownership []
When you switch from a gas-powered car to an EV, the total ownership cost savings can range from $10,000–$15,000. That means driving a Nissan LEAF can be approximately 20% less expensive than a similar car that runs on gas. []
Commute up to 19 times per charge []
The average daily commute to work is around 8.7 km. When you crunch the numbers, the Nissan LEAF’s maximum range of 342 km allows for up to 19 commutes per charge. With ARIYA’s 490 km of available range, it only increases from there. [][][]
Cruise in the HOV lane
Gliding past stop-and-go traffic saves you time, energy and battery life. Depending on where you’re located, driving an EV can grant you access to HOV and carpool lanes. []
Access preferred parking
Many public charging ports are located right near the front entrances of stores – convenient when you need to top up your battery and run a few errands. []
Hear more music, less motor
With no combustion engines, EVs provide whisper-quiet performance, which makes the cabin feel nice and peaceful. If you drive a Nissan EV, that also lets you focus in on the available Bose® sound system. []
Cut out tailpipe emissions
Beyond the day-to-day electric benefits, you’re producing zero tailpipe emissions. That means you can leave gas prices and emissions testing in the past.
Smart Home Integration
Curb energy costs at home
Beyond the savings that come with cutting gas from your budget, and lower maintenance costs, there are other perks to a Nissan EV. With the all-new ARIYA, you have intelligent technology that integrates with your smart home for a few more everyday benefits you’ll appreciate. []
Hit the lights while you’re out
ARIYA offers Alexa Built In, which lets you control smart home devices from your car by voice. That means you can adjust the lights at home while you’re out and about, so you’re not accidentally consuming energy. Plus, it’s nice to bring the lights back up while pulling into the driveway – a warm welcome home for yourself and the crew. [][]
Keep tabs on temperature
Access your smart home devices and bump the temperature up or down as needed. ARIYA lets you do it all safely with hands-free cabin tech. It’s another way our pure electric crossover empowers you to take charge of home energy consumption and costs. []
