The community transport organisation I work for is leasing an electric car.

100% electric, not a hybrid.

There’s an official launch day next month, but today staff had a preview.

I didn’t actually drive it but the Nissan Leaf is very comfortable in the back, very spacious. The dashboard is straight forward. The accessories of radio, media, GPS, seemed more complicated than the actual car controls. The silence does seem odd.

There is a charge point at work. One of about twenty in Tasmania.

Promoting an electric car here, is quite an innovative step.
