Symphony EV helps Safari Park’s green ambitions
Knowsley Safari Park has welcomed a 100% electric Nissan LEAF car, supplied through Symphony EV, which is sponsored by local dealer Nissan Liverpool.
The vehicle, which is the best-selling electric car in Europe for the fourth year in a row, will be charged using electricity from the attraction’s own solar panels and is therefore entirely free to run.
Richard Smith, head of visitor services at Knowsley Safari Park, said: “In many ways the LEAF is the perfect car for us as there are effectively no running costs – that’s a real advantage. It fits very neatly with the conservation and sustainability message that the team are delivering to schools across the region.”
The two full-time educators for the Learning and Discovery Team at Knowsley Safari Park travel around 10,000 miles a year whilst transporting snakes, spiders and other creepy-crawlies to primary schools.
By adding the silent-running car to its fleet, the zoological-attraction will become even more eco-friendly as the park already harnesses rainwater and operate a zero-to-landfill policy.
Symphony EV, who are located on Sefton Street, Liverpool, supply and install a variety of electric vehicles and charging points to promote a greener future with zero emissions. Under normal charging conditions the LEAF costs just two pence per mile to run.
The eye-catching model is decorated with the park’s striking livery so be sure to keep an eye-out when you’re on the road.
