Nissan Leaf scores biggest ever fleet deal with police force

Nissan has supplied 30 electric Leafs to West Midlands Police
Nissan has scored a fleet deal to supply 30 Leafs to West Midlands Police, marking the largest single order of the firm’s all-electric lower medium model to date.

The vehicles will be used across 10 local policing units (LPUs) as “diary cars” – to attend meetings with victims of crime and members of the public who have contacted the police.

Diary cars are said to average 40-45 miles a day, which make electric vehicles appropriate for the job.

The force made the order after trialling the cars last summer, and charging points have been installed at each relevant LPU.

Police and crime commissioner for West Midlands Police, Bob Jones, said: “The LEAFs fit in perfectly with the operational requirements of diary cars and will significantly cut our fuel costs while also reducing our carbon footprint.”

This follows two recent small scale fleet buy-ins for the Leaf from Microsoft, which procured two, and Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service, which has one.
