Only 15% of those asked, believe that driving less is a realistic resolution for the future. However, choosing smaller vehicles, wasn’t an option for more than half (63%) of those questioned.

By contrast Nissan LEAF drivers registered on CarWings telematics have collectively driven one billion kilometres worldwide*, drivers have saved more than 180 million kilograms of CO emissions and over 147,000 Nissan LEAF vehicles have been sold globally to date, so someone must be buying them.
