Football Pro, Eden Hazard Joins Nissan's #ElectrifyTheWorld Movement

Football Pro, Eden Hazard Joins Nissan's #ElectrifyTheWorld Movement

Belgium international and Real Madrid C.F. football player, Eden Hazard, shares his electric experience in order to inspire more drivers to join him in switching to a 100% electric vehicle.

Being a father of four, Eden recognises his children played a huge factor in his decision to join the EV community. His reasoning behind selecting a LEAF was fuelled by the desire to secure a cleaner future for his family.

Eden Hazard, Nissan global ambassador, commented: "As a father, I have a duty to my kids to lead by example. There are many positive actions we can make, like choosing an electric vehicle, that will only have a positive impact for the planet, and the people."

"The biggest benefit of my LEAF is its 100% electric powertrain, it makes me proud to be an EV driver and partner with Nissan to electrify the world together. We all need to make changes today to secure the future of our planet Earth."

Eden has experienced first-hand the positive impact EVs can have on the environment and wants to share his experience in the hope to encourage others to switch to electric mobility.

Eden was impressed with the LEAF’s acceleration and power after experiencing it for the first time with Formula E racing driver Oliver Rowland for an impressive track day last year.

Eden continued, saying: "There are many things I enjoy about my LEAF. It looks super cool inside and out – the exterior look is sophisticated, the inside feels futuristic and the driving experience is impressive to say the least."

Coralie Musy, Regional Vice President, Brand & Customer Experience, Nissan AMIEO, commented: "With Eden's help, it is our goal to inspire people to take positive action for the planet and in 2021, we're continuing to educate drivers on the longer-term impact they can have. Eden is one of over 500,000 LEAF owners who has joined the revolution to #ElectrifyTheWorld and we want that number to continue to rise."

"As we enter a second decade of electrification, we are determined to create a more sustainable future for all. We're expanding our electric vehicle offering and have set the goal to achieve carbon neutrality across our company operations and life cycle of our products by 2050 however the support of global role-models is invaluable."

"The future of mobility is electric and through a concerted effort, we can encourage drivers to make the switch and accelerate the global effort against climate change," continued Coralie.
