Real Madrid and Belgium international footballer, Eden Hazard, has partnered with Nissan to inspire more drivers to join him and switch to a fully electric vehicle.
Supposedly an owner of a Nissan LEAF, Hazard is sharing his experiences in a bid to “strengthen electric mobility education and highlight the smarter, cleaner and fun-to-drive EV experience.”
“As a father, I have a duty to my kids to lead by example. There are many positive actions we can make, like choosing an electric vehicle, that will only have a positive impact for the planet, and the people,” said Eden Hazard, a global ambassador for Nissan.
“The biggest benefit of my LEAF is its 100% electric powertrain, it makes me proud to be an EV driver and partner with Nissan to electrify the world together. We all need to make changes today to secure the future of our planet Earth.”
Since experiencing first-hand the positive impact EVs can have on the environment, Hazard says he wants to share his experience in the hope of encouraging more drivers to switch to electric mobility.
“There are many things I enjoy about my LEAF. It looks super cool inside and out – the exterior look is sophisticated, the inside feels futuristic and the driving experience is impressive to say the least,” continued Hazard.
Hazard shared his electric journey in the continuation of Nissan’s My Life with a Nissan LEAF series, a collaborative collection of user experience stories to raise awareness and enhance motorists’ understanding of electric vehicles.
“With Eden’s help, it is our goal to inspire people to take positive action for the planet and in 2021, we’re continuing to educate drivers on the longer-term impact they can have. Eden is one of over 500,000 LEAF owners who has joined the revolution to #ElectrifyTheWorld and we want that number to continue to rise,” said Coralie Musy, regional vice president of brand & customer experience, Nissan AMIEO.
“As we enter a second decade of electrification, we are determined to create a more sustainable future for all. We’re expanding our electric vehicle offering and have set the goal to achieve carbon neutrality across our company operations and life cycle of our products by 2050 however the support of global role-models is invaluable.
“The future of mobility is electric and through a concerted effort, we can encourage drivers to make the switch and accelerate the global effort against climate change.”
