“You have to get it into your daily routine…just plug it in overnight…and don’t think about it.” (Amy Williams)

Skeleton gold medallist and Go Ultra Low ambassador Amy Williams, someone who is used to propelling herself along in an efficient way, got behind the wheel of the ultra low emission Nissan LEAF.

The Olympian was surprised at how simple and normal the car was to drive:

I’ve been completely bowled over. It’s just a normal car. You don’t have to adapt your driving, you don’t have to do anything different.

While the Nissan LEAF might be simple to drive, that doesn’t mean it’s basic. “It’s got every mod con and every gadget you need in the car”, says Amy. She also loved the practicality and performance of the all-electric Nissan:

“The boot is huge and it’s so lovely to drive – it’s smooth and so quiet, you can’t even hear it.”

The Winter Olympics champion found charging the LEAF incredibly easy.

“You have to get it into your daily routine and it’s easy – I just plug it in overnight. You don’t even have to think about it.”
