Nissan LEAF

In addition to the previous news of 4,051 LEAFs sold in UK in 2014 (up from 1,812 in 2013), we found out that almost one-third comes from fleets.

Exactly 1,211 LEAFs were registered by fleets, which seems like a lot to us:

"Meanwhile, a renewed focus on electric vehicles strengthened Nissan's position as market leader. During 2014, the brand's dedicated EV fleet specialists clocked up a 56% increase in sales, with 1,211 all-electric Nissan LEAFs registered by fleet customers."

SMMT data indicates that 63,358 Nissan brand cars were registered by fleets in 2014, which would mean that LEAF's share in this category is almost 2%.
