Nissan have announced that the new Nissan LEAF will be available for short term hire in London and Paris. This will now make the LEAF available to a wider audience.
Guillaume Cartier, Vice President for Sales Operations at Nissan International SA said “there are two distinct reasons for joining forces with Europcar to introduce Nissan LEAF to the short term rental market in these two busy cities, the first is obvious: with its absence of tailpipe emissions and an outstanding driving pleasure, the Nissan LEAF is the perfect car for the inner city. The second is for drivers currently unsure whether an EV is suitable for their needs. By renting a Nissan LEAF and living with it in real world conditions they can evaluate the car in their own time.”
Although the Nissan LEAF is as easy to drive as a conventional car, every customer hiring a LEAF will be given a face-to-face handover by a Europcar representative who has been fully trained on the car and its workings. For Londoners, this will be a particularly important development as Mayor, Boris Johnson, aims to make London the electric car capital of Europe.
