Nissan LEAF leads EV sales across Europe

With one unit sold every 10 minutes in Europe, the new Nissan LEAF is the best-selling electric vehicle across the region in 2018


A year since going on sale in Europe, the new Nissan LEAF is leading the way for customers switching to electric vehicles (EV), with 26,000 units already delivered to customers and on European roads.

The award-winning LEAF topped European EV sales for every one of the first eight months of 2018, with one unit sold every 10 minutes across the continent.

Strong sales growth has been a characteristic for new LEAF across Europe including markets such as Austria, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Portugal and Spain. In Norway, the Nissan LEAF has risen through the sales charts to become the top-selling passenger car in 2018, outperforming all electric and combustion-powered models alike.

Like retail customers, business users are also embracing electrification. More than 8,000 of the total have been delivered to corporate fleets throughout Europe.

“As the interest in electric vehicles continues to grow, we’ve made sure that the opportunity to experience and own our new LEAF model is more accessible than ever before,” said Gareth Dunsmore, director, electric vehicles, Nissan Europe. “When we set out to design the new Nissan LEAF, we wanted to create a car built on the feedback of over 100,000 existing owners here in Europe. Today feedback such as ’I love the instant torque… the performance is fantastic… e-Pedal makes driving very easy’ are common reactions from our newest customers. It’s a car you can look forward to driving and appreciate living with on a day-to-day basis, and the sales figures reflect this.”
