Nissan shuts 2G car service in UK

Nissan is shutting down its 2G app for older electric cars in the UK from April 2024.

Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) in the UK have confirmed that 2G services will not be available past the end of the decade, but individual operators are switching off 2G services at different times says Nissan.

The move impacts early LEAF and e-NV20 cars built before 2016, which is around 3,000 vehicles in the UK. Half are active users of the app, who can still use the main features using timers but not remotely.  

“The NissanConnect EV app currently linked to Nissan LEAF and e-NV200 vehicles produced up until 2016 will shut down from 1 April 2024 in preparation of the 2G technology sunset,” said a spokesperson.

“The discontinuation of the NissanConnect EV app for these specific models is related to the Mobile Network Operators’ decision to sunset 2G technology and impacts all car manufacturers.As a result, owners of the affected vehicles using the NissanConnect remote services will no longer be able to do so. Owners will however, still be able to use key features such Climate Control Timer and Charging Timer directly from their car’s Navigation System.”

The move does not affect current vehicles and current connectivity apps says the company.
