Renault-Nissan mark electric car milestone – the Nissan LEAF is the best-selling electric car globally.

It’s been fascinating watching the roll-out of electric cars over the past decade, sure there have been some setbacks, but progress has certainly been made.

One of the champions of the electric car has been the Renault-Nissan alliance and now the two brands have just achieved a respectable sales milestone – the delivery of the 250,000th Renault-Nissan electric car.

Purchased by an engineer in France, the milestone vehicle was a Renault ZOE.

The good news for Renault-Nissan and the environment (if you believe there is an environmental benefit from EVs) is that the alliance has sold 15% more electric cars during the period January-May this year.

The Nissan LEAF remains the sales star for Renault-Nissan; the best-selling electric car has now passed more than 180,000 global deliveries.

Carlos Ghosn, Chairman and CEO of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, says demand for electric vehicles continues to grow.

“The positive response of our customers is also driving demand.”

“These vehicles enjoy some of the highest levels of satisfaction rates from our customers around the world.”

The Nissan LEAF is priced from $51,490 in Australia.
