The Nissan LEAF family is growing

January 26, 2019

Sales of the award-winning, all-electric Nissan LEAF are surging throughout Europe as consumer appetite for electric vehicles (EVs) continues to grow.

Norway has emerged as a standout market for the LEAF, with more car buyers opting for the EV over any other car on sale. More than 12,000 LEAFs found homes in the country in 2018, with the nation’s strong focus on sustainability cited for its sales success.

This success is mirrored locally as the Nissan LEAF continues to be the best-selling electric vehicle in the UK.

Owing to consistent high demand, the Nissan LEAF has taken the crown as the best-selling EV overall in Europe for 2018, with more than 40,000 sold across the continent.

And Nissan recently confirmed two new versions of the car for Europe. Both the Nissan LEAF e+ 3.ZERO Limited Edition and the Nissan LEAF 3.ZERO are available to order now, with first deliveries expected in summer 2019.

The LEAF e+ 3.ZERO Limited Edition is fitted with an uprated 62kWh battery which brings enhanced performance and a range of up to 239 miles from a single charge.

The new Nissan LEAF 3.ZERO equipped with a 40kWh battery features an eight-inch infotainment screen enabling additional connectivity services such as door-to-door navigation. An all-new and improved NissanConnect EV app will also be available when the new LEAF 3.ZERO goes on sale in Europe. In addition to new connected services, it also benefits from new colour options, including a contrasting roof, enabling more scope for personalisation, enhancing the appeal of Nissan EV ownership even further.

Ken Ramirez, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Nissan Europe said: “This latest announcement marks the start of a very optimistic 2019 for our EV range. The fact that the Nissan LEAF is still the default choice for EV buyers in Europe is  testament to its all-round capability as the icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility – especially with the ever-growing range of competitors.

“We can celebrate standout sales success with Norway as an example, as it highlights how the Nissan electric ecosystem has established itself as a sustainable lifestyle choice in a relatively short space of time. With the range now stronger than ever, we look forward to welcoming more customers to EV ownership in the coming months.”
