World’s best-selling EV, Nissan LEAF, celebrates major milestone.
It seems not that long ago that electric cars were more science fiction than science fact, how that has changed in recent times thanks to models like the Nissan LEAF.
The best-selling 100% electric car globally, the Nissan LEAF is celebrating five years in existence and Nissan in that time tell us that the EV has saved 328,482 tons of CO2 from entering the environment, globally.
Another LEAF milestone will be met next month when the 200,000th Nissan EV is delivered to a customer.
But while the Nissan LEAF has been and continues to be a success for Nissan, the Japanese brand say their EV remains an ongoing work in progress. The LEAF recently got an upgrade that extended its range to around 250km and Nissan President and CEO, Carlos Ghosn, says more developments are on the way.
“EV technology will continue to be at the heart of Nissan’s product development efforts. By combining our pioneering EV technologies and other intelligence and innovations, Nissan is moving closer to a zero-emission future for car transportation.
“With the technologies we are creating, mobility is becoming safer, cleaner, more connected and more exciting. That’s the power of innovation. And that’s what you can expect from Nissan.”
