Eco-friendly car finance seekers might be interested to note a number of Nissan LEAF motors have arrived in the UK.
The first regular European shipment of the automobile – which won the 2011 European Car of the Year award – is set to come to the north-east on the City of St. Petersburg, the brand’s green car carrier for transporting vehicles around Europe.
Simon Thomas, senior vice-president of sales and marketing at Nissan International SA, the company’s European headquarters, said it is fitting that the motors are being delivered on the manufacturer’s environmentally-friendly transporter.
He added: “The Nissan LEAF is a genuine alternative to petrol and diesel cars in terms of style, features, safety, performance and handling.”
What’s more, he pointed out it is a landmark day for the company, as well as European transport, describing the green motor as the world’s first affordable all-electric car.
