I am 54 years old, married and living in Saltash, Cornwall, UK.
I was one of the first people in the UK to get a Nissan Leaf in April 2011. Since then I have done over 24,000 miles (38,000km) in the Leaf travelling all over the UK and to Amsterdam and I regularly do trips of 500 – 1000 miles (800-1500km) in a single weekend.
When we bought the Leaf we also had a Land Rover Freelander but when the Vauxhall Ampera was launched in 2012 we sold the Freelander and bought an Ampera. The Ampera allows us to have 2 electric cars while still being able to do long trips where it would not be sensible or convenient to do in the Leaf.
I want to do all I can to promote the transition to an electric world , reducing our dependence on oil, and electric cars are a major step forward.
Apart from electric vehicles… I am a self-employed computer consultant working from home with my wife Sally. My other interests include photography, watching sport, motor racing, model helicopters, amateur theatre (technical), sailing, aeroplanes and aviation.
