Our Vehicles and Technology
The Nissan Leaf is a highly reliable and elegant vehicle. It is a very well known electric car with over 500,000 built worldwide. It has a good range of 150 to 220 miles depending on the model which more than meets the needs of funeral directors daily journeys.
At Brahms we aim to make electric funeral vehicles as affordable as possible. Up to £20,000 can be saved choosing a low mileage base car rather than top of the range one.
The Leaf comes with its own charging adaptor that links the standard household 3-pin plug to the connector in the nose of the Leaf car. This simple ‘free’ solution will fully charge the car overnight.
Other equipment will charge the car more quickly e.g. the Chargemaster wall charger at 3kW or 7kW. These devices are also more robust for use in a commercial setting. They cost under £900 to buy and install.
The publically available charging sites (See ZapMap) include Rapid Chargers which take just 30 minutes to charge up to 80% full battery.
