In UK, Nissan LEAF Provides Quiet Ride Through National Park

National parks are often home to delicate ecosystems with wildlife that shouldn’t be disturbed by the roar of combustion engines or the stench of tailpipe emissions. Yet, the only way for most people to gain access to nature parks is in a car. A luxury B&B in the U.K. has the answer: offer visitors a guided tour in an all-electric quiet Nissan LEAF.

“So many of our guests come to us to enjoy the stunning Dartmoor scenery and so using the LEAF to give them a safari-style experience seemed like the perfect idea,” said Upcott House Proprietor, Kay Bickley, in an interview posted at U.K.’s The Green Car Website. “We already had two LEAFs and so we knew first-hand how the model’s near silent running made driving through the park even more pleasurable. Now our guests are able to enjoy the same wonderful experience.”

Upcott House is an award-winning luxury bed and breakfast, located in Devon, a county located in southwest England. The B&B, situated less than a mile from the town of Okehampton, overlooks the Okement Valley and the 72 acres of Dartmoor National Park.

Bickley installed a public charger at eco-friendly Upcott House and the LEAFs were supplied by nearby JFE Nissan Exeter. According to the Upcott House website, it offers “one of only two charging stations in the South West between Exeter, Bristol and Cornwall that offers free charging along the lines of WiFi Fon network.” The B&B employs a host of energy-saving strategies, and has ground-mounted 10 kilowatt hour solar photovoltaic array (which makes its LEAF that much greener).
