Allianz Malaysia Berhad (Allianz Malaysia) recently revamped its fleet of electric vehicles (EV) with two new 2019 Nissan LEAFs.
This was a continuation of Allianz Malaysia’s green agenda to reduce its carbon footprint in terms of business logistics, which first began with the first fleet of EV cars in 2015.
The LEAFs, which are being leased from Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn. Bhd for the next three years, can go up to 290km on a full-charge and is available for employee-use.
Allianz Malaysia Berhad Chief Executive Officer, Zakri Khir, said that having the Allianz-branded LEAF, the world’s first mass-market 100 percent EV, will be a welcome change.
“We were shopping around for a new fleet of EV cars and the Nissan LEAF was a great fit for many reasons. The car has a great resume – zero-emission and comes equipped with its very own safety and driver assist technology. This all bodes well for our green agenda and at the same time, we are looking forward to our employees enjoying a smooth and safe ride on us,” said Zakri.
According to Nissan, the LEAF models has saved more than 2.4 billion kilograms of carbon dioxide since they were first introduced in 2010.
