Goodwood to go electric with rapid chargers
The new rapid chargers, capable of “filling” an all-electric LEAF to 80% battery capacity in 30 minutes, have been donated by Nissan as part of its aim of installing 150 fast chargers in the UK by next spring.
In addition the estate is looking to take on a pair of Nissan LEAFs, which will be used by Lord March and his family, as well as being put to general use around the estate and farm.
Lord March said: ‘I am thrilled that Nissan has so generously agreed to install three electric vehicle charging points at strategic locations around the Goodwood Estate. Electric vehicles are a key ingredient to the future of motoring and reducing harmful emissions, and with Nissan’s support I am pleased to be pioneering this ethical form of transportation across Goodwood, especially with the British-built Leaf.’
