Coaching and education organisation Saints Southwest has added a fresh set of wheels to its fleet after partnering-up with South West Nissan’s Wellington dealership.
A brand new all-electric Nissan LEAF hit the streets of South Devon earlier this month – with its sleek black silhouette adorned with the instantly recognisable Saints Southwest logo.
Proudly sponsored by South West Nissan, the sporty five-door vehicle will be used to transport coaches and equipment to many of Saints Southwest’s football development, community and education sessions across the West Country.
With its 39kWh battery replacing a conventional petrol or diesel engine, the Nissan LEAF will go a long way to helping coaches care for the local environment.
Mark Titchard, Director at Saints Southwest, said: “We are delighted to have been able to work together with our friends at South West Nissan to get this across the line.
“At Saints Southwest, we pride ourselves on being new thinkers, so the opportunity to take on a modern, technologically-advanced pool vehicle was one we had to grab with both hands. Our staff are fully committed to reducing our carbon footprint.
“Having a fully electric car to use for travel between our sessions will be a massive asset in terms of helping us to achieve that. We are also aligned with South West Nissan’s commitment to serving a diverse range of age groups and abilities across the areas we cover.
“The LEAF has already started to appear at some of our community sessions. If you spot it, make sure you go and check it out!
“Once again, we are massively grateful to everyone at South West Nissan for their sponsorship. Everyone here is excited to see our new partnership grow.”
Brett Wallis, Sales Manager at Wellington Nissan, said: “We are proud to be supporting Saints Southwest due to their diverse coaching for all age groups and disabilities.
“Working within the South West gives Saints Southwest EV mobility solutions to see savings while travelling around the regional communities.”
