Maybe I'm just not getting this but I think Nissan UK have lost the plot - completely;

So rather than provide another Leaf as a courtesy car when yours is in for service they're providing an electric bicycle! ha ha ha. So you drive 10 miles to the dealer and then get on the bicycle and ride home. What a cheapskate trick to pull. Why not provide another Leaf or failing that provide a petrol car and give £20 of free fuel to make up for the higher cost, but no "buying a Leaf is like becoming a vegetarian" says Nissan - could they come out with a more stereotypical nonsensical load of tripe if they tried? I mean, these EV users are all bearded, vegan, hippies right?
No wonder the Leaf release in the UK appears so badly managed, it seems they have fools at the top. Imagine this story getting picked up by the news channels/papers.
