This month Japanese automobile manufacturer Nissan is celebrating the 100,000th delivery of their electric car LEAF in Europe. The supply of over 320,000 vehicles makes this model the most sold EV in the world. Over 37,000 new Nissan LEAF cars have been ordered in Europe over a span of eight months.
The car is equipped with the company’s semi-autonomous ProPILOT driving assistant and the ProPILOT Park technology, which helps drivers manoeuvre in different parking situations. Drivers can also benefit from the e-Pedal, which allows them to start, accelerate, decelerate and stop by increasing or decreasing the pressure applied to the pedal. By driving the Nissan LEAF European customers have saved over 300,000 tonnes of CO2.
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 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.”
