Fleetdrive are working with local communities as part of the ‘My Electric Avenue’ project to trial new technology that can monitor and control the demand on the local electricity network due to the recharging of electric vehicles.
A number of electric vehicle test drive events have recently taken place in areas around the country with potential ‘My Electric Avenue’ clusters. Mike Potter from Fleetdrive Electric, who has helped to organise the events, says that people have always reacted extremely positively to their first drive of an electric car.
“Sitting with people while they drive an electric car for the first time has been an interesting and very easy experience”, says Mike. “Everyone who has driven the Nissan LEAF has been really impressed with the performance, refinement and general driving manners of the car. I haven’t had to work hard to convince people of the merits of going electric, they’ve realised the benefits themselves very quickly.”
