    Nissan Backs Team GB and Paralympics GB for Olympics

    With the winter Olympics less than a year away, Nissan has recently backed Team GB and Paralympics GB for both Sochi and Rio Olympic Games.

With the winter Olympics less than a year away, Nissan has recently backed Team GB and Paralympics GB for both Sochi and Rio Olympic Games.

Being one of the UK’s leading motor manufactures, Nissan will be supporting the athletes on their ‘Road to Sochi and Rio’ as their official automotive partner. Nissan will apply its innovation in technology to the athletes as well as its logistical expertise to aid the athletes in replicating the success gained at the London 2012 games.

Team GB delivered a performance at the London 2012 games that surpassed all expectations and produced Great Britain’s largest medal total in over 100 years, bringing home a total of 65 medals: 29 gold, 17 silver and 19 bronze.

The announcement of the partnership was made by Lord SebastianCoe at a press event in central London. 

He said: "I am delighted that Nissan, a company that is recognised globally for excellence and performance, is partnering with Team GB on the ‘Road to Sochi and Rio’.

"The BOA played an important role in enabling me to pursue my Olympic dreams and compete for Team GB, and now, thanks to partners like Nissan, today’s athletes can be afforded the same support. Nissan has invested heavily in British industry and now it is backing Britain in the greatest sporting arena in the world."

Nisan will be providing over 4,500 vehicles to aid the events leading up to and including the games. They will also provide support for the BOA and BPA to help with the logistics.

Nissan has a massive base in the UK where they employ over 6000 people. Last year Nissan produced 510,000 vehicles,with 1 in 3 cars in the UK being produced by Nissan. This new partnership between Nissan and the Olympic and Paralympics Teams enhances Nissan's great relationship with the UK.

Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Howard Garages (Weston) Ltd to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
