First person to pass their driving test in a Nissan Leaf

The government has recently announced that it will spend £500 million to boost the sales of electric vehicles. Nissan Leaf is at the forefront of the electric vehicles and promises to be the future. Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, Danny Alexander Chief Secretary to the Treasury and Baroness Kramer Transport Minister outlined how the Office of Low Emission Vehicles will spend its funding over the next five years. This includes £200 million which will continue to go towards the Plug-in Car Grant, which sees the Government contribute up to £5,000 towards the cost of new ultra-low emission vehicles.

To further boost Nissan’s green credentials, April saw the first person to pass the driving test in the all-electric Nissan Leaf, a doctor in Sunderland Royal Hospital. Dr Ahmad Holeihel passed the driving test on his first attempt in the car which is the latest addition to the fleet at Newcastle-based Superpass driving school “I had begun driving lessons in an automatic car in Dubai but I really struggled to find a driving school here that provided automatics for learners,” he said. “I was very pleased I was able to choose a car that was not only automatic but environmentally friendly.” he added.
