Bristol has been awarded the UK's first European Green Capital award – and the Bristol Green Capital 2015 team will be using their new fleet of Nissan LEAFs to deliver their programme of events throughout the year!
Not only is the LEAF built right here in the UK at Nissan's Sunderland plant, but they also emit no CO2 emissions and cost just 2p per mile to run. This made the LEAF the perfect choice of car, showing Bristol's commitment to green living and making Bristol a role model for city living worldwide.
Zoe Sear, Director at Bristol 2015 Ltd, said: “Transport is one of five themes that we are focusing on during our year as the UK's first European Green Capital.
“For us, these five branded Nissan LEAFs are not just a convenient way to get around – they are emblems of what the future will look like in terms of car use; they are a visual reminder that Bristol is the Green Capital of Europe; and they are a sustainable way for us to get out to events right across the city and engage with members of the public about what it means to create a happier, healthier city for future generations."
The 100% electric Nissan LEAF is a spacious, high-specification five-seater family car, and has a range of up to 124 miles. There are electric charging points located at all of our Glyn Hopkin Nissan dealerships, as well as a growing network of rapid charging points across the country, including 95% of motorway service stations. Driving an electric vehicle has a range of benefits, including no Road Tax, no Congestion Charge and free parking in many places, as well as super low running costs.
