Nissan is delighted that Benefit In Kind tax levels on Electric Vehicles (EVs) from April 2015 will be 5% of its P11D price in 2015/16 rather than 13% as previously announced.

A 20% tax paying LEAF driver will pay 284 per annum or just 24 per month in company car tax and a 40% tax payer 569 per year or just 47 per month. This compares very favourably with competing five door diesel cars from other car makers. The Budget announcement means that by keeping BIK rates for company EV drivers at the lowest rate, more will look to choose an EV like the LEAF as their next company car.
