London’s mayor, Boris Johnson, gets a Nissan Leaf
Since it became the first electric car ever to win “World Car of the Year“, the Nissan Leaf is getting more and more attention, not only from the media, but also from Government institutions from all over the world. Here’s proof: London’s Mayor, Boris Johnson, recently got a Nissan Leaf. The Leaf is part of a project created by the Transport for London (TfL), whose staff will drive the zero-emission car for a month.
This is because London now has the first citywide electric vehicle membership scheme, which consists of a network of integrated electric charging points for EVs. This is all for Mr. Boris Johnson’s goal to turn London into the electric vehicle capital of Europe. Here’s the Maryor’s statement:
“Zero-emission electric cars are perfect for city driving, not only delivering cheaper day-to-day running costs for their owners, but also helping to bear down on pollution levels. With a wider range of vehicles now available, we are shifting up a gear to provide more support through Source London for the increasing numbers of people who want to drive them.”
His goal is to create at least 1,300 publicly accessible charge points in two years’ time. Do you this goal is reachable?
