Car importers yesterday spoke of an increase of interest in electric vehicles following the completion of the Great Electric Drive, a year-long pilot project promoted by the ESB.

The scheme, which saw 21 “ambassadors” trial electric vehicles for periods from three months to a year, managed to reduce individual fuel costs by up to 90 per cent, according to the ESB.

Nissan, which sells the Leaf electric car in Ireland, said it has compiled a waiting list for the latest three models, which are not expected to be seen on Irish roads until early next year.
