Electric cars lead the way

BULWELL’S Highbury Hospital has led the way with an innovative project for ‘greener’ transport.

The hospital, on Highbury Road, was the venue for the first pilot of a Nissan Leaf electric car, provided free of charge and used for community visits.

Electric vehicles are completely free of carbon dioxide emissions during driving and are not subject to any road tax.

The Highbury Hospital trial showed that the cars were practical for use in a community mental-health setting.
