Strong sales growth has been a characteristic for new LEAF across Europe including markets such as Austria, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Portugal and Spain. In Norway, the Nissan LEAF has risen through the sales charts to become the top-selling passenger car in 2018, outperforming all electric and combustion-powered models alike.
Like retail customers, business users are also embracing electrification. More than 8,000 of the total have been delivered to corporate fleets throughout Europe.
The new Nissan LEAF builds on the talents of its predecessor, adding the latest generation of Nissan Intelligent Mobility technology and a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating under the latest test standards.
The Nissan LEAF’s advanced driving assistance technology, ProPILOT and ProPILOT Park, make it effortless to navigate through traffic and easy to park. The innovative e-Pedal brings new levels of driving simplicity and fun by allowing customers to accelerate and decelerate using only one pedal.
Gareth Dunsmore, director, electric vehicles, Nissan Europe, said: “As the interest in electric vehicles continues to grow, we’ve made sure that the opportunity to experience and own our new LEAF model is more accessible than ever before.”
He added: “When we set out to design the new Nissan LEAF, we wanted to create a car built on the feedback of over 100,000 existing owners here in Europe. Today feedback such as - ‘I love the instant torque… the performance is fantastic… e-Pedal makes driving very easy’ are common reactions from our newest customers. It’s a car you can look forward to driving and appreciate living with on a day-to-day basis, and the sales figures reflect this.”
