SALES of the all-electric Nissan LEAF have increased by 10% across Europe in the first half of the financial year.
The latest figures also show there are now more than 75,000 Nissan electric vehicle owners across Europe and the EV revolution gathers pace.
And the latest figure comes hot-on-the-heels of the announcement that 260,000 Nissan EVs have been sold worldwide, reinforcing Nissan’s vision for a zero-emission future as the brand continues to make Intelligent Mobility a reality.
Increased demand for the Nissan e-NV200 has been a major factor in rising Nissan EV sales.
Sales of the 100 percent electric van are up 34% year-on-year, bolstered by Nissan’s class-leading five-year, 100,000 mile warranty.
Gareth Dunsmore, Director of Electric Vehicles at Nissan Europe, said: “Europe’s electric vehicle market is growing at an extraordinary pace as motorists across the continent switch on to the multiple benefits that electric mobility provides.
“As part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, it is our aim to offer customers around the world a safer and more sustainable future through our electric vehicle range including, the Nissan LEAF and e-NV200. By driving sales, we are encouraging increasing numbers of drivers to switch to EVs and ultimately, move towards to a zero-emission future.”
