Nissan has now sold 10,000 units of the battery-electric LEAF in Europe. The LEAF went on sale in Europe in March 2011 in a handful of markets and is now available across the region.
In March, Nissan sold more than 1,000 LEAFs, said Nissan Europe Director of Electric Vehicle, Jean-Pierre Diernaz. In April, LEAF was the second best-selling car overall in Norway. (Earlier post.)
We are seeing a shift in attitudes to electric mobility, with more people buying electric cars and the infrastructure developing at an ever increasing rate. We have hit this landmark just as we prepare to introduce the new European-manufactured Nissan LEAF with over 100 improvements into the market.—Jean-Pierre Diernaz
