The Nissan LEAF Charging Station is now available as a free download for SimCity, EA and Maxis have announced.

In the case of your Sims, the Charging Station provides happiness to the Sims that use it and a one-time burst of happiness to the nearby businesses. The unit produces no sewerage or garbage and will not take power, water or workers away from your city.

If you zoom in you'll notice a percentage of Sims driving electric vehicles.

To download the Charging Station head over to Origin and then restart your game. Analysis

Whilst clearly a big – and glowing pollution free – advertisement for Nissan, for those who can look past this there's a free DLC item up for grabs.

Product placement at its most insidious. I wonder if it reduces happiness when the charge runs out half-way between cities during the commute? :p

I like this little bit of DLC maybe the Boris bikes may get added next, just a shame I have no room in my cities for this as my back garden is bigger than these maps.

I have to assume it's solar powered, which great for when it's been cloudy for oh I don't know a million years in the UK and you drive up to the charging point and it's all like "I'm out of electrics. Sorry, bro" yeah thanks Nissan.

So... An electric car charging station takes no power? Ok, seem legit and it's free.
