The 12,000sq ft site, which is dual branded blue and orange, complemented with green from LV= General Insurance brand logo works as an extension of the insurance brand for our mutual customer, with Nissan customers also benefitting from the additional approval.

James Dunn, AW’s Group Operations Director said, “Partnering with Nissan is a strategic move for AW. Not only does it secure Derby’s first manufacturer approval but electric vehicles are the future and we must invest to stay ahead.”

Chris Payne – Head of Networks and Engineering at LV= General Insurance said, “I’m absolutely delighted we have the opportunity to extend our partnership with Nissan across our sole site partners. It offers benefits to AW Derby, our mutual customers and ourselves, especially in relation to Nissan’s advancement in electric vehicle technology and how this will complement our own bespoke EV car policy.”
