Reflections from a Temple: A First Owner of Nissan LEAF

Reflections from a Temple: A First Owner of Nissan LEAF

TOKYO (Jan. 20, 2014) – Three years ago, Anyo-in Temple’s Chief Priest Wasei Hirai was one of the first people to take home a Nissan LEAF electric car. Earlier this month, he sat down with the Global Media Center to reflect on EV ownership as global sales reach 100,000, with a new customer halfway across the world in the UK. Hirai, who has driven his LEAF 12,000 kilometers, says the car fits perfectly with his ancient temple’s philosophy of innovation and its messages about the environment and way of life.
