Nissan has handed over the keys to a Leaf to the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson. With the Spring 2011 launch of London's city-wide plug-in vehicle membership scheme, Source London, it's fitting to have at least one Leaf on hand. Through Source London, Johnson champions plug-in vehicles and will supposedly install 1,300 public-use chargers across the sprawling city by the end of 2013. Upon receiving the Leaf, Johnson stated:
Zero-emission electric cars are perfect for city driving, not only delivering cheaper day to day running costs for their owners, but also helping to bear down on pollution levels. I am pleased to accept a Nissan Leaf on Transport for London's behalf so more of our staff can experience the silent, smooth electric experience for themselves, whilst carrying out their duties.
Technically, the Nissan Leaf is on loan to Transport for London and will be used by the city's Surface Transport staff to service traffic signals and roadside cameras. The Leaf joins a garage full of other electric vehicles that are part of Transport for London's permanent fleet.
