Nissan LEAF sales in Europe have risen by 10 percent in the first half of FY16, compared with the same period last year. The latest figures also reveal that there are more than 75,000 Nissan EV owners in Europe as the electric vehicle revolution speeds up.
EV sales have been further bolstered by strong e-NV200 sales year-to-date FY16 – up 34 percent year-on-year. Increased demand for Nissan’s zero-emission e-NV200 from comes as the brand celebrates the extension of its class-leading five year warranty to include the all-electric LCV.
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.”
With the LEAF’s 30kWh battery now offering 155 miles in driving range, and as many as 4,000 quick chargers installed across Europe, driving an electric car is more practical and enjoyable than ever before, providing an easy gateway to a zero-emission future.
Nissan is dedicated to delivering a smarter, more sustainable future, with customers across the globe having driven more than 2.5 billion electric miles.
