A NHS employee and youth club leader has driven away a new Nissan Leaf, after winning a competition run by leading automotive magazine Auto Express. Ian Bryant, 49, of Wraysbury near Windsor, was presented with the keys to a pearl black 40kWh Leaf at West Way Hanwell, West London.
Ian will also have a PodPoint home charging unit fitted at his family home for the year long prize. Ian will be using the Leaf for his daily commute to the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital - where he is Deputy Director of IT - as well as providing transport to youngsters at the youth club he runs twice a month.
'I've never owned an electric vehicle before and I'm really excited to get started, although I am anticipating the lack of any noise is going to take some getting used to!' Ian said. 'Its a very cool car and I expect the youth club will be impressed!'
'I commute around 30 miles a day, and as I said in my competition entry, if this car can work for me and my lifestyle, it'll work for everyone'. Auto Express Editor in Chief Steve Fowler, who presented the keys, said; 'I'm actually really jealous of Ian as he drives away the new Nissan Leaf - it's a fantastic car and one of the most popular with our readers. We're delighted for him though and hope he has a great year of driving ahead'.
