Nissan’s latest green offering | Grocott’s Mail Online

The world’s first mass-production electric car quietly rolled into town last weekend – but only for a visit.

The Nissan Leaf (Leading, Environmentally friendly, Affordable, Family car) was on view during the Highway Africa conference from 1 to 2 September.

Two Nissan Leaf vehicles were on display outside the conference venue at Rhodes University’s Eden Grove building and were available for test drives. The hatchback is the world’s first 100% electric, zero-emission car, designed for the mass market.

The Department of Environmental Affairs, one of the sponsors of Highway Africa, brought the vehicles to the conference.

According to a statement in the Highway Africa brochure, the department’s fleet of four are the first such vehicles on the African continent. The statement says the Department of Environmental Affairs engaged with all vehicle manufacturers in the country to source such a vehicle for its pioneering electric vehicle programme.
