100 mila Nissan Leaf in EuropaSusana de Mena, of Madrid, milestone buyer of the 100,000th Leaf said:

I’ve spent two years trying to find an electric car. I knew it would be a Nissan!

When I saw there was a brand-new model of the Leaf, there were no doubts in my mind it would be the perfect fit. My husband and I agreed that the quality, price and specification made it second-to-none.

We are very conscious that we must respect and protect the environment, so we knew we’d want to go 100% electric. On top of this, an electric car lets us get to the very centre of Madrid when ordinary vehicles can sometimes be restricted due to pollution issues.

With now more than 37,000 new Leaf ordered in Europe, one new Nissan Leaf is sold every 10 minutes in Europe to customers looking to switch to innovative and zero-emission technology.

The new Nissan Leaf is also equipped with e-Pedal, which allows drivers to start, accelerate, decelerate and stop – simply by increasing or decreasing the pressure applied to the pedal.

Gareth Dunsmore, Electric Vehicle Director, Nissan Europe, explained,

For us it’s no surprise that the Nissan Leaf is the world’s best-selling electric vehicle. We have been developing our electric vehicle mass-market offering for longer than any other brand and are proud to bring an affordable, visionary car to customers across Europe. In less than 10 years, we managed to make electric vehicle a mass market reality. This milestone proves once again that our Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision is embraced by our customers who believe in a more confident, more exciting, and more connected future.

European Nissan Leaf customers have now driven over 2 billion kilometres and saved over 300,000 tonnes of CO2. They also boast a 92% customer satisfaction rate – more than any other Nissan model.

Much more than just a 100% electric vehicle, the Leaf is a whole new driving experience, designed to move people with greater exhilaration, confidence and connection to the world around them. The Leaf is the embodiment of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, helping to pioneer a future which brings together intelligent power, intelligent drive and intelligent integration.
