Good Afternoon EV'ers

My name is Darren and I have just completed my first week as the new EV specialist at Toomey Nissan, Basildon, Essex.

Having never worked in the motor trade nor driven EV, I have to say what a great first week I have had.

The smile while driving the Leaf Acenta, my company car and introduction to the world of EV, has not left my face since my first drive on Monday morning. I have already become a custom to my daily routine of "plug and charge" when arriving at the showroom and I took the big step of a home charge lat night with the 3 pin charger. The house didn't blow up and the car was still in one piece this morning.

Having spent 18 years within finance and running a boutique cafe, I'm a passionate and energetic guy, but I didn't think for one second I would be as eager to speak to customers and family members about the Leaf and the concept of EV.

I really do believe that EV will be a success and that success will be based on current owner using blogs like this and spreading the word of EV.

To close my week of first's this is also my FIRST EVER blog... Will update on how I get on with the set on of our EV hub in the next couple of weeks

Looking forward to reading your blogs and answering future questions as my product knowledge and know-how expands.

Happy EV'ing EV'ers
Darren

If you fancy doing a fellow EVer a favour Darren, could you look up the cost for part number 36032-3NA0B

Thankyou! :D

Welcome, @Darren Smith

Any chance you can ask if there are plans to install a Rapid charger at your Southend dealership?
It was mentioned elsewhere that Mr Toomey (?) had agreed to it...

Hello! I often use your charger as I work around the corner... Can I ask you to make sure your ICE loving sales colleagues stop blocking my car in when it's charging? :rolleyes::D

Ta! and look forward to meeting you!
