EV ‘revolution’ speeds ahead

Figures from Nissan reveal that there are more than 75,000 Nissan EV owners in Europe as the electric vehicle revolution speeds up across the continent.

The milestone follows the recent announcement that 260,000 Nissan EVs have been sold worldwide, reinforcing Nissan’s vision for a zero-emission future as the brand continues to make Intelligent Mobility a reality.

The news is supported by European Nissan LEAF sales rising 10% in the first half of 2016 compared with the same period last year and strong e-NV200 sales year-to-date – up 34% year-on-year.

Gareth Dunsmore, director of electric vehicles at Nissan Europe, said, ‘Europe’s electric vehicle market is growing at an extraordinary pace as motorists across the continent switch on to the multiple benefits that electric mobility provides.

‘As part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, it is our aim to offer customers around the world a safer and more sustainable future through our electric vehicle range including, the Nissan LEAF and e-NV200. By driving sales, we are encouraging increasing numbers of drivers to switch to EVs and ultimately, move towards to a zero-emission future.’
