Nissan celebrates 75,000 electric vehicle sales in EuropeThe multinational utility giant Enel has partnered with Nissan for the launch of a new turnkey solution for those interested in getting an electric vehicle in Italy.

The new “E-go All-Inclusive” turnkey solution provides a 30 kilowatt-hour (kWh) Nissan Leaf, an Enel home electric vehicle recharging box/station, and free installation for a single monthly price starting at €299 (for 36 months).

The turnkey solution also provides access to a new app that allows users to easily locate and utilize Enel Energia’s electric vehicle (EV) recharging stations or its partners’ stations around Italy (users don’t have to be Enel customers).

Notably, this service is charged by the minute, not by the kWh, and accounts are settled once a month like with an electric bill, rather than every time you’re at a recharging station.

Those who make use of the new turnkey solution will have access to free charging at these stations through the end of 2016. Beginning in 2017, a promotional rate of €0.025 per minute (VAT and taxes included) will apparently apply. Not a bad rate at all. Notably, there are no activation fees or fixed costs of any kind for use of the service.

As far as the turnkey Nissan Leaf + home charging station bundle itself, there’s a down payment required, and those taking part will have the option of returning the Leaf after 36 months or refinancing for the residual value.

Altogether, that sounds like a pretty good deal. Anyone in Italy planning on taking part?
