Nissan Europe has officially handed over the keys to a 2011 Leaf to its first paying customer in the UK. British radio disc jockey Mark Goodier took delivery of the electric hatch Monday morning and whizzed down to London to host his talk show on Smooth Radio. Upon taking ownership of the Leaf, Goodier said, "there is huge joy for me never having to go to a petrol station again, your station is your driveway." Later that same day, Goodier tweeted: "Just took the new Nissan Leaf for it's first run from Waltham Abbey into London... it is amazing."
Like the U.S. launch of the Leaf back in December of 2010, the UK's first delivery of the electrified hatch attracted a significant amount of attention. By week's end, numerous Leafs will be whirring down the UK's streets. We can join in the frenzy by hopping the jump to watch Goodier drive off in the first Leaf in the UK.
