A New Nissan Leaf Sold Every 10 Minutes - Total LEAF Sales Reach 100,000 Across Europe
June 2018 sees the delivery of the 100,000th Nissan LEAF within Europe. This car has taken the electric market by storm with over 320,000 sold globally, making this car the most sold EV in the world; a victory for electric mobility.
With customers looking to switch to innovative and zero-emission technology, Nissan can boast at the 92% satisfaction rate that this model alone has received so far!
Current LEAF drivers have driven over 2 billion kilometres, saving over 300,000 tonnes of CO2.
When Susana de Mena, of Madrid, brought the 100,000th LEAF, she said, “I’ve spent two years trying to find an electric car. I knew it would be a Nissan!” She went on to say, “when I saw there was a brand-new model of the LEAF, there were no doubts in my mind it would be the perfect fit. My husband and I agreed that the quality, price and specification made it second-to-none.”
It is the first Nissan model in Europe to feature Nissan’s ProPILOT and ProPILOT Park technologies. It also comes equipped with e-Pedal, which, depending on the pressure applied to the pedal will allow drivers to start, accelerate, decelerate and stop.
Gareth Dunsmore, Electric Vehicle Director, Nissan Europe, explained, “For us it’s no surprise that the Nissan LEAF is the world’s best-selling electric vehicle. We have been developing our electric vehicle mass-market offering for longer than any other brand and are proud to bring an affordable, visionary car to customers across Europe. In less than 10 years, we managed to make electric vehicles a mass market reality. This milestone proves once again that our Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision is embraced by our customers who believe in a more confident, more exciting, and more connected future.”
This car is much more than just a 100% electric vehicle. It’s a whole new driving experience cleverly designed to move people with greater confidence, exhilaration and connection to the world around them. It’s building a future that brings together intelligent driving, intelligent integration and intelligent power. As the sales show, this car really is something else!
The latest sales figures show that one brand new Nissan LEAF is being sold every 10 minutes.
