Nissan LEAF best-selling car in Norway, top-selling EV in Europe in 2018
22 January 2019
Norway has emerged as a standout market for the Nissan LEAF EV, with more car buyers opting for the EV over any other car on sale. More than 12,000 LEAFs were sold in the country in 2018, with the nation’s strong focus on sustainability cited for its sales success.
Nissan LEAF e+
The Nissan LEAF was the best-selling EV overall in Europe for 2018, with more than 40,000 sold across the continent.
Nissan recently confirmed two new versions of the LEAF for Europe. The addition of the new Nissan LEAF e+ 3.ZERO Limited Edition, which is fitted with an uprated 62kWh battery, 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 brings to Europe’s best-selling electric vehicle an 8-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 offers new color options, including a contrasting roof.
The Nissan LEAF remains the world’s best-selling EV, with more than 380,000 units sold globally since the original car launched in 2010.
Both the Nissan LEAF e+ 3.ZERO Limited Edition and the Nissan LEAF 3.ZERO are available to order in Europe now, with first deliveries expected in summer 2019.
With more high capacity public charging facilities in our area, the next generation Leaf with 100 KW battery pack and 500+ KM range, at an affordable price, would be interesting for my wife. It could replace a Toyota Hybrid (HEV) by 2023/2025 or so?
