Nissan and Fleet Forum supply LEAF for one-year trial
Under the agreement, Nissan is offering participants in the programme the chance to experience zero emission mobility first hand with the loan of a Nissan LEAF for several months.

Paul Jansen, executive director of Fleet Forum, said: ‘Through this programme different organisations can see for themselves how electric vehicles can be used to help achieve their objectives.

Amir Abdulla, WFP's deputy executive director and chief operating officer, added: ‘Trialling the Nissan LEAF in Rome will give us first-hand experience of the latest in urban electric vehicle technology, and contribute to our efforts to reduce WFP's carbon footprint.’
