    Nissan LEAF Continues Strong Sales

    Nissan’s LEAF and e-NV2000 models are continuing to dominate the market, with sales figures for November 2016 showing strong performances from the two electric vehicles.

    Figures show that sales of the LEAF during November were up 115% on the previous year, making it the fastest growing model in the increasingly competitive C-segment. The sales growth worked to secure the LEAF’s continuing status as the UK’s best-selling all electric vehicle, with a share of 47.3% - up 30.4% from November 2015.

    Related statistics show that LEAF owners are not concerned about driving up high mileages in their vehicles, with owners travelling an average of 10,307 miles a year in their car. That’s more than 50% further than the European average for petrol & diesel vehicles (6,721 miles) and around 30% further than the average in the UK (7,900).

    Meanwhile, Nissan’s e-NV200 has remained the UK’s top-selling electric van, accounting for more than 3 out of 4 (75.4%) electric vans sold in November 2016.

    Commenting on the increased sales, Edward Jones, Electric Vehicle manager at Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd, said “The economic and environmental benefits of EV ownership are becoming increasingly attractive to drivers and we’re seeing that convert directly into demand for Nissan’s EV models.”

    “As the first manufacturer to introduce a mass-produced electric vehicle, and with more EV sales than any other car brand worldwide, its right Nissan should continue to lead the EV charge and further integrate EV technology into the infrastructure and society. With a spike in other manufacturers now getting behind 100% electric power, 2017 could be the year of the electric vehicle.”
