Nissan is responding to Ireland’s high cost of motor insurance by providing new car buyers in Offaly with two year’s free insurance.
Figures released by the CSO this week show that the cost of motor car insurance has risen by 69.2% over the last three years and that it is now 25.2% more expensive to insure a car than it was this time last year.
The ground-breaking Nissan offer, which is aimed at making the cost of running a car more affordable, is available to Laois motorists ordering any new Nissan passenger car at local dealer Downey’s Nissan in Portlaoise before the 31st December 2016.
Nissan is the first car brand in Ireland to recognise the impact of exorbitant insurance premiums and to respond to the concerns of consumers.
New car buyers interested in availing of the offer must be 26 years old, have a full driving licence, no more than three penalty points and a minimum of three years no claims bonus. Insurance does not extend to commercial use.
Nissan has one of the most comprehensive European presences of any overseas manufacturer, employing more than 17,000 staff across locally-based design, research & development, manufacturing, logistics and sales and marketing operations.
Last year Nissan plants in the UK, Spain and Russia produced more than 635,000 vehicles including award-winning crossovers, commercial vehicles and the Nissan LEAF, the world’s most popular electric vehicle.
Pursuing a goal of zero emissions and zero fatalities on the road, Nissan recently announced its Intelligent Mobility vision. Designed to guide Nissan’s product and technology pipeline, this 360 degree approach to the future of mobility will anchor critical company decisions around how cars are powered, how cars are driven, and how cars integrate into society.
Nissan is positioned to become the most desirable Asian brand in Europe
