The new Nissan LEAF EV has already secured more than 37,000 orders in Europe since it launched, and propelled sales of the LEAF EV to over 100,000 in Europe in the process.
The new Nissan LEAF is a big jump forward on the rather quirky first generation car, and now offers properly mainstream design and far more usability than ever. It really is an EV you can use in just about the same way as an ICE car.
We reported back in March that the new LEAF had already secured 20,000 orders in Europe in quick sticks – and a new LEAF was being ordered every 12 minutes – but things have improved further still now the new LEAF can be seen out on the road.
Nissan are reporting that they’ve now secured more than 37,000 orders for the new LEAF in Europe – now selling one every 10 minutes – and in the process have pushed total sales of the LEAF in Europe – the new model and the old – beyond the 100,000 mark. Which is around one third of global LEAF sales since the original LEAF was launched, and makes the LEAF the best-selling electric car…in the world.
Gareth Dunsmore, Nissan’s EV Director, said:
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 vehicle 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.
Just wait until the LEAF SUV arrives.
