Nissan Sells 15,000 LEAFs In UK, Offers £500 ‘Electric September’ Customer Reward
Nissan announced the milestone of its 15,000th LEAF sold since 2011 in the UK. This mark comes about a year after reaching the 10,000 level.
The UK remains one of the largest markets for the LEAF in Europe, with nearly 25% of the total 61,000 sold in the region. Worldwide LEAF sales have now exceeded 230,000, including nearly 100,000 in U.S.
“The 15,000th LEAF customer was a Mrs Jenny Craik, who purchased her LEAF Acenta from West Way Nissan in Aldershot, Hampshire.
Jenny said; “When I was researching a new car, the Nissan LEAF offered great running cost savings against my 14-plate Ford Fiesta, even though the Nissan’s a bigger car. Together with the environmental positives made it a really attractive package. My husband drives a plug-in hybrid and he’s already competing with me to spend time in the LEAF as it’s just an enjoyable driving experience.””
Nissan also celebrates the 15,000 LEAF by launching a £500 ‘Electric September’ customer reward for new LEAF and e-NV200.
“The £500 reward is on top of a range of attractive deals available. A 24kWh LEAF Acenta is currently being offered on a 3-year PCP with £249 monthly payments, £5,000 Nissan deposit contribution, free home charging unit (worth £390) and just 5.99% APR representative.”
“The £500 reward offer is valid on all Nissan electric vehicle purchases until 30th September and registered by 31st December 2016. Customers will be issued with a £500 pre-paid debit card issued on registration of the vehicle. Available to cash and finance customers.

Ed Jones, EV Manager at Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd, said:
“Nissan LEAF owners are some of the most satisfied drivers on the roads today. They’ve realised switching to all-electric power delivers so many benefits – running costs around four times cheaper than that of a conventional combustion engine and up to 40 percent savings in vehicle maintenance, to name but a few. There’s good reason the LEAF is the best-selling EV in the UK and we hope our September sales offer will inspire even more people to make the switch.”
