Being totally electric Nissan Leaf went greener than before. As reported, the Japanese carmaker’s EV has entered into the safari business.
Learning and Discovery Team at Knowsley Safari near Liverpool had moved in 100% electric Nissan Leaf to its fleet. With this electric vehicle they are admired to send a message of conservation and sustainability to schools across the North West.
The team’s educators clocks approximately 10,000 miles every year for their activity in the field.
The Nissan Leaf that had entered the fleet is taken from Nissan Liverpool in Sefton Street wearing Knowsley Safari’s striking livery. The vehicle is said to be charged from the solar panels.
Richard Smith, Head of Visitor Services at Knowsley Safari, said: “In many ways the Leaf is the perfect car for us. It’s fantastic. Because we’ve been able to couple our charger to our solar panels there are effectively no running costs and that’s a real advantage. But we also operate in accordance with a strict sustainability plan and in that regard the Leaf is a winner too. It fits very neatly with the overall message the Learning and Discovery Team are delivering at schools across the region.”
Nissan Liverpool General Sales Manager, Mike Thomas, said: “We’re delighted to be able to support such a prestigious and fantastic attraction and I’m delighted they’re reaping the benefits of the Nissan Leaf. So many other businesses and individuals could be enjoying the environmental and economic benefits of the model as well and I’d encourage them to take a test drive and see how easily it could meet their needs. Even when it’s charged from a domestic socket rather than from solar panels, the Leaf costs just two pence per mile to run and it’s hard to argue with that.”
