Nissan launches three-month PCP payment holiday for new car buyers

Nissan GB's N-TEC range

Nissan has followed a string of car manufacturers in offering a three-month PCP finance payment holiday offer on models across its range of vehicles.

Volkswagen Group brands begun offering the COVID-19-prompted break for new car buyers last month, following on from the likes of Renault/Dacia and Ford's offer of a six-month break in payments.

This week the Japanese brand opened up its offer on the new Juke, the LEAF electric vehicle (EV), Micra hatchback, Qashqai crossover, X-Trail SUV, Navara pick-up and e-NV200 commercial vehicle.

Selected Micras, Qashqai N-TEC and X-Trail N-TEC models are also available with 0% finance as part of the new Q3 finance offer, while Nissan is continuing to run its scrappage-style SwitchUP campaign, which offers discounts of up to £6,300 on selected models when customers trade in an eligible vehicle.

Nissan Motor (GB) marketing director, Nic Thomas, said: “We understand that these are challenging times for households across the nation, so we wanted to design our latest offers to ensure Nissan vehicles remain accessible and affordable for customers.

“A three month PCP payment holiday, plus interest-free finance and full warranty and servicing backup from our dealer network will give people peace of mind that they can buy their next new car with confidence.”

Thomas’ appointment as marketing director at Nissan Motor GB was announced by the brand last week, with marketing director Nicolas Verneuil set to shift into the post of sales director.

Thomas returned to the UK from Japan, where he led Nissan’s Global EV Business and the worldwide launch of the latest Leaf electric vehicle (EV), to take the role.
