Nissan kicks off the show in Geneva with news of a LEAF order tsunami in Europe.
2018 Nissan LEAF
Nissan says it has received more than 19,000 orders for the new LEAF in Europe, including 13,000 of those being placed before the car was even in retailer showrooms.
A new orders is being placed in Europe right now at an average of one every 12 minutes! Well, that's more than 3,000 a month right?
We believe that the previous report of 40,000 orders globally now stands at 50,000 or 60,000 or perhaps even more.
In 2017, more than 31,300 Renault ZOE were sold in Europe to capture the #1 title for electric car sales. The new LEAF will likely be able to beat ZOE this year, we think.
"The icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility is the fully electric, zero-emission Nissan LEAF. With more than 300,000 sold since launch in 2010 and more than four billion kilometers driven by customers, it’s the world’s most popular electric vehicle.
2018 Nissan LEAF
Nissan is already a generation ahead when it comes to clean sustainable motoring, and with the launch of the all-new second-generation LEAF – on sale in Europe since last month – the brand is again rewriting the rule book for EVs.
Orders across Europe have now passed 19,000, with 13,000 of those placed before the car was even in retailer showrooms. It means the “Simply Amazing” new Nissan LEAF is Europe’s fastest-selling EV.
Currently, a new LEAF is being sold every 12 minutes across Europe.
Technology that debuted on the new LEAF is already being rolled out across Nissan’s range of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles. For example, ProPILOT advanced driver assistance technology will be available on Europe’s best-selling crossover – the Nissan Qashqai – later this month.
ProPILOT is a building block of autonomous driving and an example of Nissan’s innovative approach to Intelligent Driving. ProPILOT is designed to increase driver excitement, control and confidence for Nissan owners."
