More than 18,000 new Nissan LEAF vehicles were registered in Europe between January and June. European customers have now placed more than 37,000 orders for the new LEAF since it first went on sale in October 2017. The new model LEAF has a larger, 40 KWh-hour battery delivering a driving cycle range of 168 miles under Europe’s new WLTP emissions and economy standard.

The 100 percent electric vehicle has won several awards for its technology and performance. It won the ‘2018 World Green Car’ award at the New York International Auto Show and has received 5-star safety ratings from both the European New Car Assessment Programme and the Japan New Car Assessment Programme. It is also the flagship model for Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company’s vision for changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society.

The car features Nissan ProPILOT, ProPILOT Park and e-Pedal. So far, 72 percent of new LEAF buyers have chosen models equipped with the ProPILOT semi-autonomous driving system.

The strong demand for the new Nissan LEAF in the first six months of this year reinforces its status as the best-selling electric car on the planet, with more than 340,000 global sales since the first LEAF was launched in 2010. Recently, Nissan delivered the 100,000th Nissan LEAF to a European customer.

“The momentum continues to build for electric cars” said Gareth Dunsmore, electric vehicle director at Nissan Europe. “The new LEAF has transformed the experience of driving, with technologies like e-Pedal, capable of reducing braking interaction by up to 90 percent, showing more customers the benefits of electric mobility that Nissan offers.”
