Dublin’s Q102 switches to 100 per cent electric Nissan Leaf


Dublin’s Q102 is going green by becoming the first radio station in the capital to make the switch to driving the 100 per cent electric Nissan Leaf.

The station has taken delivery of three new Nissan Leafs and all three cars will be used by its ‘Blue Crew’ who are a familiar sight on the streets of the city.

With a range of over 300 kilometres on a single charge the Nissan Leaf is set to greatly reduce the radio station’s carbon footprint while also saving it up to €6,000 a year in car running costs.

Nissan has applauded Q102 for its green credentials and for making the switch to zero emissions driving.

Jeanne McGann, Marketing and Communications Director at Nissan Ireland said: “The Nissan Leaf is the world and Ireland’s best-selling EV. The Q102 Blue Crew travel the length and breadth of the city each day and we are delighted that they will now do so in the 100 per cent electric, zero emissions Nissan Leaf.

“The Nissan Leaf is an ideal city car with its ePedal function making it easy to start, accelerate, brake and to bring the car to a stop with the throttle pedal. We are certain that the Blue Crew will enjoy all that it has to offer and that their new EVs will receive even more attention as they make their way to events throughout the city.”
