The new Guardia Civil Leaf.

THE Guardia Civil announced on November 10 that as part of its commitment to the conservation of the environment, which balances operational requirements against the need to restrict gas emissions from vehicles, it has purchased its first electric vehicle.

The decision to put into service a Nissan Leaf has been made with the intention that it be used in areas where relatively small numbers of kilometre need to be covered such as ports and airports and it is believed that as well as reducing the Guardia Civil carbon footprint, there will also be long-term financial savings.

This first vehicle which has five seats and cost in the region of €20,000 is 100 per cent electric powered with an expected range of 199 kilometres from a single charge of its battery.
