The Nissan sales sores high
The new Nissan LEAF e+ 3.ZERO Limited Edition, which is fitted with a 62kWh battery, has proven to be a very attractive proposition on the continent. Pre-orders of the new model currently total more than 3,000, with Norway currently leading the charge with pre-orders reaching almost half of the 3,000 units. As a quick reminder, LEAF was the top-selling car overall in Norway in 2018. This puts the Nissan LEAF in prime position to achieve record sales once again in 2019.
Ken Ramirez, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Nissan Europe said: “The overwhelmingly positive response to the Nissan LEAF e+ 3.ZERO Limited Edition shows just how appealing it is to own a Nissan EV. It’s no wonder the Nissan LEAF is the best-selling EV in Europe and the number one selling car overall in Norway.
“The Nissan LEAF combines leading environmental credentials with outstanding driving dynamics, performance and an enviable roster of technology. The Nissan LEAF e+ 3.ZERO Limited Edition is the highest expression of our record-breaking EVs and we look forward to starting deliveries to customers in the coming months.”
The Nissan LEAF e+ 3.ZERO Limited Edition has a power output of 160 kWh (217 PS), and an expected range of up to 239 miles on a single charge.
Also unveiled to much admiration at CES, the Nissan LEAF 3.ZERO with a 40 kWh battery which if I am not mistaken is available to order now.
The new LEAF 3.ZERO models both feature a generous and appetising amount of standard features that looks not only very impressive but also adds to it’s appealing factor. The new NissanConnect infotainment system, e-Pedal and ProPILOT, are but the few widely acclaimed Intelligent Driving technologies available at your finger tip.
A new driving experience for many, allowing the driver to start, accelerate, decelerate and stop using only the accelerator pedal.
An advanced driving assistance technology which works on single-lane highways. A ‘hands-on, eyes-on’ system, it allows the car to stop, restart and stay centred in its lane in higher-speed cruising and lower-speed congested traffic scenarios.
The consistent high demand for the Nissan LEAF secured its crown as the best-selling EV overall in Europe for 2018, with more than 40,000 sold across the continent. In addition, 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.
