The President of Portugal is driven in an armored Audi A8.
Prime Minster Jose Socrates became the first head of state in the world to adopt an all-electric vehicle as his Official State Car. The Prime Minister's car is among the first 10 Nissan LEAFs in Portugal which is also the first EU nation where the LEAF goes on sale, as recognition of the country's pioneering work in the electric mobility field with the MOBI.E Programme. The 10 Nissan Leafs were delivered by Carlos Tavares, Vice-President of Nissan, in a special ceremony that took place in Parque das Nações, in Lisbon.
Previously, the Prime Minister was ferried in a VW Phaeton.
