Gentoo Group staff go for a spin in Nissan Leaf pool cars – Business News – News – nebusiness.co.uk

HOUSING association staff are aiming to do their bit for the environment after taking delivery of seven new Nissan Leafs.

The workers from Sunderland-based Gentoo Group, took the electric vehicles out for a spin on Gateshead College’s performance test track to learn how their new pool cars work.

Director of Gentoo Green, Sally Hancox said: “The Nissan Leafs have been a welcome addition to Gentoo and is a further step towards being planet smart and reducing our carbon emissions.

“It also offered a great opportunity for staff to visit the Gateshead College performance track and learn from the staff how to make the most of these electric vehicles.”

An expert team from the college explained to staff the features of the electric vehicles – which have been leased through Benfield Motors – where and how to charge them and also answered any health and safety queries they had.

It’s anticipated that each Leaf will cover 12,000 miles a year, saving 25 tonnes of carbon, the same weight as 250 baby elephants.
