TRAILBLAZER: eConnect Cars are all-electric
London chauffeuring service eConnect Cars have added seven Nissan Leafs to their all-electric fleet.
The company, who will add another 14 by the end of the year, will provide the vehicles to business clientele with every journey having zero tailpipe emissions.
Alistair Clarke, Founder of eConnect Cars, said: “The development in the technology and inherent capabilities of electric vehicles are the prime reasons for why we have an opportunity to apply a practical, intelligent approach to the London private hire scene, something I wanted to convey with eConnect Cars.
“There’s a big window of opportunity to do things smarter when it comes to urban mobility, and the introduction of an all-electric Leaf fleet has been a way in for us.”
Barry Beeston, Corporate Sales Director at Nissan, added: “More and more corporate organizations are requesting zero emissions transport when selecting their taxi or chauffeur account provider, so companies like e-Connect will have a real advantage over competitors who cannot offer this service, at the request of their customers.
“The Leaf range has something for all operators, from the entry level Visia with a strong focus on affordability, to the Tekna offering a high spec vehicle for chauffeur work.
“With low noise, both driver and passenger will enjoy relaxed journey in a comfortable environment, reassured by the fact their journey will be less harmful to the city and its inhabitants by travelling in an eConnect Leaf.”
