My New Nissan LEAF by Ben Michael

Tags: , , ,


I’m Ben Michael, a Sales Executive for FJ Chalke Nissan, Wincanton. The Nissan LEAF is my company car, and I travel to and from my home in Wellington everyday. The following is my views on the Nissan LEAF and how my experience has been over the last month.

Firstly the ride comfort is sensational, but the way the Nissan LEAF handles, picks up speed, and how quiet it is, make it such a peaceful commute everyday. I believe the LEAF to be the best solution against Petrol/Diesel, purely on how easy it is to re-charge, and the rapid charge to always fall back on… which in the near future I hope they’ll be a lot more around!

Charging my LEAF at home is both safe, and convenient. I can truly say I love driving my new car, luxurious inside with all the ‘bells and whistles’, but hassle free and an enjoyable commute of 90 miles a day. It is truly a superb alternative for people who do little mileage, and wish to save a lot of money in the long run.

Nissan LEAF Test Drive Week for Climate Week

I’m Beverley, the Electric Vehicle Sales Manager for the Nissan LEAF at FJ Chalke, Wincanton. We are very proud to be in partnership with Dorset Energized.

This revolutionary new car is the world’s first affordable 100% electric car with zero emissions and has impressed the media and potential customers alike, as well as picking up two of the motor industry’s biggest accolades by becoming both the European and World Car of the Year 2011 which, seeing as it is the first electric car to ever achieve this, shows just how good it really is.

I haven’t been in car sales for long at all, and the Nissan LEAF is the first and only car I have ever specialised in. Customers sometimes are too afraid to walk into a dealership in case they are thrown into a massive sales pitch, when all the really want to do is take a look at a car, and possibly test drive it.  So to celebrate Climate Week, FJ Chalke will hold a test drive open week for the Nissan LEAF 12th to 17th March. No strings attached, just come in, take a look at the LEAF and getting a feel for the car by taking it for a test drive and experience the real deal for yourself. All we would ask for is feedback.
