In a blog entry, Holloway writes that although there is nothing wrong with using a fleet on 1 Series and 3 Series vehicles to transport Olympic official and athletes during the games, the success of BMW’s bid pushed out other contenders who would have increased the use of electric vehicles and encouraged the instalment of charging points. Among the other contenders was Nissan, who promised that of the 4000 vehicles needed, at least 2,000 would have been the all-electric Nissan Leaf.
