“I Made The Switch” – Portrait Of A Nissan LEAF Owner: Diana Wilder, San Diego
The Renault-Nissan Alliance “I made the switch” series has arrived to San Diego, one of the EV adoption epicenters of the U.S.
The video presents the story of Nissan LEAF pioneer Diana Wilder, who bought the electric car in 2011.
All those who bought the LEAF in 2011 are among the first 10,000 U.S. customers. Now, in early 2015, total LEAF sales have exceeded 73,000.
Diana also made use of San Diego’s sunny weather by installing photovoltaic panels.
“The Alliance sold its 200,000th electric vehicle in November 2014 – by far more than all major automakers combined. To capture what the first 200,000 owners love about their EVs, the Alliance has launched a series of videos featuring EV owners on three continents. “I Made the Switch” tells why people bought their electric vehicles and how switching to a zero-emission vehicle has changed their lives.
In our latest “I Made the Switch” EV owner video, we travel to San Diego to meet with Diana Wilder, a university administrator and proud owner of a Nissan LEAF since 2011. A committed environmentalist, Diana powers her LEAF with solar energy generated from photovoltaic panels installed at her home. Find out more here.”
