On Saturday 13th June, we held a LEAF event at our Wigan branch. Nissan had organised for a specialist to be on hand to present some of the key benefits of the LEAF to a the invited public.
There was also a number of LEAF Ambassadors on hand to speak to people about their experience with running a LEAF day to day.
The Ambassadors are normal people – they are not employed by Nissan – they are just people who bought a LEAF, love it, and want to tell other people about how driving electric cars has been great for them.
It was an excellent day, with lots of people taking test drives in the LEAF, and also a few people trying out my e-NV200 Combi. The overwhelming feedback was that they loved how the cars drive, and they were very happy to hear from the Ambassadors about how they haven’t had to sacrifice their normal driving habits to make the switch to electric vehicles. A number of people have arranged for extended test drives (where they can take the LEAF or e-NV200 for up to 4 days) to confirm that the car will suit all their needs.
