Father of four, Eden acknowledges his children were a huge driving factor behind his own decision to join the EV revolution. Choosing to drive a LEAF was fuelled by the ambition to secure a cleaner future for his family. Since experiencing first-hand the positive impact EVs can have on the environment, Eden wants to share his experience in the hope of encouraging more drivers to switch to electric mobility.
First time experiencing a Nissan LEAF with Formula E racing driver Oliver Rowland for an unforgettable track day last year, Eden was impressed with its acceleration and power. Witnessing the thrilling limits of an EV solidified his own decision to choose an electric vehicle.
“As a father, I have a duty to my kids to lead by example” said Mr Hazard who is also a Nissan global ambassador. “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. The biggest benefit of my LEAF is its 100 percent 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. 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”.
Coralie Musy, Regional Vice President, Brand & Customer Experience, Nissan AMIEO, added that with Eden's help it is Nissan’s goal to inspire people to take positive action for the planet. Eden is one of over 500,000 LEAF owners who have joined the revolution to #ElectrifyTheWorld and the company wants that number to increase.
Eden shares his electric journey with a Nissan LEAF series in a continuation of Nissan's My Life, a collaborative collection of user experience stories to raise awareness and enhance motorists' understanding of electric vehicles.
