The 100,000th Nissan LEAF Owner
Jan. 20 – Winchester, UK – British dentist Dr. Brett Garner is the 100,000th customer of the 100%-electric Nissan LEAF globally.
He and his wife, who run a dental practice in Fareham, picked up their new LEAF at the Martins Nissan dealership in Winchester.
“I have chosen my Nissan LEAF because I am very interested in its running costs,” Dr. Garner said.
“The cost of ownership, such as maintenance, insurance and charging also convinced my wife. She had the experience of driving 500 miles in a borrowed LEAF and the low cost was remarkable, so she was converted and insisted that we have a LEAF.”
As as a father of three, Dr. Garner says the car is convenient and comfortable for his family.
“The Nissan LEAF is perfect for everyday commuting, and there is no problem with charging it. It is ideal for the family as it is quiet and not tiring even on longer journeys, because there is no vibration.”
The Nissan LEAF, the world’s first mass-produced zero emissions vehicle, remains the best-selling EV in history with a 45% market share and saw a record year for sales in 2013.
