The 100% electric vehicles have no CO2 emissions and so are environmentally friendly to operate. They are cheap to run and there are Government subsidies to help in the purchase of the vehicle.
This event was of special interest to the public with lots of stands displaying a range of ways to reduce carbon emissions from buying local produce, hence reducing transport use, renewable energy gathering, insulation, renewable heat, and electric vehicles.
Andrew Morton, Local Business Manager for Greenhous Nissan says of the event: “It was a new venture for us to be involved in and it reflected the growing interest there is in saving energy and reducing our personal carbon footprint. We displayed our Nissan all-electric vehicles with the LEAF and E-nv200 van on view. Our colleagues from Greenhous Renault also displayed a Renault ZOE car. The electric vehicle is sure to become the future mode of transport as ever increasing constraints on CO2 emissions are imposed on countries.”
