Microsoft employees rate the Nissan LEAF

Microsoft employees rate the Nissan LEAF Two Nissan LEAFs have been delivered to Microsoft UK, becoming the first 100 percent electric cars to join its staff company car scheme. Keen to look for ways to reduce its vehicle fleet carbon footprint, Microsoft UK ran five weeks of competitive internal trials with other electric car manufacturers.
The trial involved inviting 500 Microsoft UK staff members ranging from engineers and senior directors to sample a variety of vehicles.
The Nissan LEAF made the final selection list after praise from Microsoft UK staff for its comfort, driveability and wealth of standard equipment.
Microsoft UK has since welcomed the car to its scheme by installing two 32 amp quick chargers at its Reading HQ allowing staff who have opted for the LEAF to charge it on site.
First to take delivery of a Nissan LEAF is Alex Kureen, Microsoft UK's partner/channel marketing manager. Kureen will keep the vehicle for four years and cover approximately 7,000 miles per year as the LEAF becomes his environmentally friendly commuter vehicle.
Katie Colledge-Price, Microsoft UK's car benefits manager said: "As you can imagine at a software company, when we announced the vehicle trial list we were overwhelmed with staff interest in an advanced piece of technology like the Nissan LEAF.
"During the trial the LEAF received consistently positive feedback for how enjoyable and calming it is to drive as well as being a comfortable family vehicle. We have installed charging points at our Reading HQ to encourage staff to consider electric vehicles to help reduce our carbon footprint so we're now looking forward to welcoming more LEAFs to Microsoft UK."
Barry Beeston, Nissan corporate sales director said: "Microsoft UK is at the cutting edge of hi-tech developments so to hear its praise for the LEAF and its technology is particularly pleasing. The LEAF represents an excellent solution to cutting any company's carbon footprint as well as reducing running costs for the end user. After a positive trial process, we now look forward to providing more LEAFs as staff at Microsoft UK see the benefits of 100% electric vehicles."
