Wellington Motors are hosting a 100% electric vehicle event on Saturday 19th September at the Nissan 4WD Centre at Chelston Business Park. The event will run from 9am to 4pm to showcase the new electric Nissan Leaf & Nissan E-NV200 Van. Test drive opportunities will be available by appointment.
Adam Westcott, the resident electric vehicle specialist at Wellington Nissan, said, “I will be hosting the event but we are also partnering with the Ilminster LocalGen Home Energy Centre, an organisation dedicated to increasing the awareness of green & renewable energy. Hopefully we will have some current electric vehicle owners on site with their cars as well, just to share their experience with electric side of driving! And of course will we have various refreshments available – tea & coffee and cake & biscuits.”
Nissan Motors launched the Nissan Leaf all-electric car in 2010; by February 2013, the Leaf was the world’s best selling highway-capable all-electric car with 50,000 units sold. In August 2013, Nissan confirmed the company has plans for 5 plug-in vehicles. These 5 include the Nissan LEAF, the Infiniti LE, the Nissan e-NV200, and 2 further models not yet announced.
With zero emissions and new developments in battery life, electric vehicles are an increasingly attractive and viable option for car and van owners and this event provides an opportunity for them to sample the green future of motoring.
