Alesha Dixon will be lighting up Portsmouth on Monday (May 21st) as she switches on the lights at Spinnaker Tower.
This is not just any light switch on. For one night only, the Spinnaker Tower lights will be powered by the charge from a Nissan LEAF, the world’s first mass-produced 100% electric family car.
The acclaimed vehicle, which provides up to 109 miles on one charge, has been specially converted to allow the power of the battery to be extracted.
The event is being staged as part of Nissan’s The Big Turn On campaign, an initiative designed to raise awareness of the low-carbon benefits of 100% electric vehicles.
A live performance by the popular singer and campaign ambassador will follow the big turn on.
