Nissan is collecting a lot of accolades for its electric cars around the world.
One of the latest one is the Ultra Low Emission Vehicle Manufacturer of the Year at the Energy Saving Trust's highly regarded Fleet Hero Awards.
"The brand picked up the honour for its ongoing leadership of the ULEV sector in the face of growing competition from other carmakers.
The awards judges were impressed that the pioneering 100 percent electric Nissan LEAF - the world's bestselling electric car - is becoming ever more popular with fleet operators and business car drivers everywhere.
And they applauded Nissan's continued commitment to electric vehicle technology with the launch earlier this year of the all-electric e-NV200 van, a vehicle with the potential to revolutionise the commercial vehicle sector."
Philip Sellwood, chief executive of the Energy Saving Trust, stated:
"The Fleet Hero Awards is one of the key events on the sustainable transport calendar and they go from strength to strength each year."
"This year's winners show just what is possible for running efficient fleets and supplying innovative products and services. They are the pioneers setting the standards for others to follow."
Barry Beeston, Corporate Sales Director at Nissan Motor (GB), commented:
"We are absolutely delighted to have been honoured in this way by the Energy Saving Trust."
"The LEAF and the e-NV200 have picked up dozens of industry awards between them but this award is particularly special as it recognises the contribution Nissan has made to the success of electric vehicles in the UK and our ongoing commitment to providing the fleet sector with desirable and practical vehicles which offer a simple and cost effective solution to lowering emissions."
