All-Electric London Chauffeur Services Takes First Delivery of Nissan LEAFs

eConnect Cars

One of London's newest chauffeured transportation services, eConnect Cars, took delivery of more than a half dozen Nissan LEAFs earlier this summer, becoming one of just a few chauffeuring companies in the city to operate a fleet of 100% electric vehicles. It plans to have a total of 14 in its all-electric fleet by year's end.

The company is still in its infancy, having launched just this past January, yet it already serves high-end corporate clients like Maclay Murray and Spens LLP. There is no doubt that eConnect Cars' is a decidedly green company, committed to having a fleet composed entirely of LEAFs, and using Energy Saving Trust data to provide customers with carbon emissions savings compared to other transportation options.
The company expectedly has its eye on growth in London and expansion into other cities, which seems promising as their pricing is reportedly competitive for short journeys, and on par with other corporate chauffeur firms for longer trips.

"The development in the technology and inherent capabilities of electric vehicles are the prime reasons for why we have an opportunity to apply a practical, intelligent approach to the London private hire scene, something I wanted to convey with eConnect Cars,” Alistair Clarke, founder of eConnect Cars, said in a press release. "There's a big window of opportunity to do things smarter when it comes to urban mobility, and the introduction of an all-electric LEAF fleet has been a way in for us."

Barry Beeston, Nissan's Corporate Sales Director, also said in the release, "More and more corporate organizations are requesting zero emissions transport when selecting their taxi or chauffeur account provider, so companies like e-Connect will have a real advantage over competitors who cannot offer this service, at the request of their customers."
