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.

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.
