Nissan celebrates 10,000 Leaf sales in the UK

  • Nissan achieves new milestone as UK sales of LEAF exceed 10,000 units
  • LEAF sales top 2,900 in the first six months of 2015, reaffirming its place as the best-selling pure electric car in the UK
  • Nissan LEAF continues to outsell the pure electric competition by more than two-to-one
  • The UK is the number one European market for Nissan LEAF sales

Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd is today celebrating a significant milestone as figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturing and Traders (SMMT) confirm that more than 10,000 Nissan LEAFs have been sold in the UK since the vehicle came to market.

Launching in 2011, the Nissan LEAF quickly established itself as the nation’s pure electric model of choice and despite the arrival of a number of new entrants in the market, the latest dataset released by SMMT confirms that the LEAF remains firmly ahead of the chasing pack.

In the first half of 2015, Nissan clocked up 2,964 LEAF sales in the UK, up 68.4% on the same period last year, taking the total number of LEAFs sold since the vehicle’s launch to 10,161.

Of those sales, the majority of units were sold in the last 12 months (51.7%) and predominantly to retail customers with almost 71.2% of LEAFs registered in the retail channel. This significant growth is reflected in the wider EV market as the benefits of switching to all-electric mobility become better known. 

Delve deeper into today's figures released by SMMT, and the data also reveals that the Nissan LEAF outsold all other pure electric models combined by more than two-to-one in the first half of 2015, commanding a market share of 63.3%.

The news comes as a new value-packed Acenta+ grade is added to the LEAF line-up, offering even more choice to prospective owners. Available now, the new Acenta+ model adds new features that make the British-built Nissan LEAF an even more complete package.

James Wright, Managing Director, Nissan Motor (GB) commented: “The UK’s electric vehicle market is growing at an extraordinary pace and while it may be too early to talk about tipping points, today’s achievement certainly indicates we’re well on our way.

“I am proud that the Nissan LEAF has played such a major role in changing perceptions of EV ownership and I am even prouder that the UK is now the number one market for LEAF sales in Europe.”
