Nissan has now sold over 100,000 Leafs. One of the first Leaf owners, Anyo-in Temple’s Chief Priest Wasei Hirai, recently sat down with Nissan in order to discuss his experience with the Leaf and other matters. Check that out in the video below.
As Nissan notes, “Hirai, who has driven his LEAF 12,000 kilometers, says the car fits perfectly with his ancient temple’s philosophy of innovation and its messages about the environment and way of life.” As with any normal person, Hirai loves how smoothly and quietly the Leaf drives, loves its quick acceleration, and loves the car’s quality steering. As he notes at the end, he sees electric vehicles as being the future of the automobile. “The day will come that whenever people think of a car, it will be an electric car,” he says.
