Nissan have released a video that shows the five best drives in Europe for an electric car.
Using the 100 per cent electric Nissan LEAF and e-NV200, the road trip passed through Italy, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, the UK and France.
The routes were chosen for their beautiful roads, incredible views and regular charging points and saw the electric vehicles travel 125 miles through some of Europe's best driving spots.
Explaining the reason behind the trip, Jean-Pierre Diernaz, electric vehicle director at Nissan Europe commented: "Our drivers have told us that the LEAF isn't just a commuter car. We hope EV drivers are inspired by these picturesque routes and spend their summer weekends enjoying the scenic countryside in the serenity of a zero-emission Nissan EV."
During the trip, the LEAF and e-NV200 saved approximately 20 kg of carbon dioxide emissions, a figure which equals the amount of carbon dioxide a newly planted tree absorbs in a year. This saving illustrates a clear benefit for Nissan EV drivers as they hit the road this summer.
More than 184,000 LEAFs have been sold globally since the EV's conception in 2010, 42,000 of which in Europe. Nissan designed the routes to show off the range, driving capabilities and ease of its class-leading electric vehicles.
