Nissan LEAF Breaks New Ground In Norway

Tue 22nd Jan 2019

After being confirmed as the top-selling electric car in Europe yet again, Nissan have reached new heights with the LEAF in Scandinavia.

With more than 12,000 in sales for Norway in 2018, the LEAF is now the No.1 car in the country, outselling even the more popular petrol and diesel variants.

Norway’s success with electric vehicles owes much to the country’s strong focus on sustainability and with demand for EVs set to soar over the next two years, Nissan will be keen to continue their dominance.

Across the continent the LEAF sold 40,000 units in 2018 and is planning a wide range of improvements with two new versions set to be launched in the next 12 months.

“This latest announcement marks the start of a very optimistic 2019 for our EV range,” said Ken Ramirez, Senior Vice President for Sales and Marketing at Nissan Europe: “The fact that the Nissan LEAF is still the default choice for EV buyers in Europe is a testament to its all-round capability as the icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility - especially with the ever-growing range of competitors.

“We can celebrate standout sales success with Norway as an example, as it highlights how the Nissan electric ecosystem has established itself as a sustainable lifestyle choice in a relatively short space of time. With the range now stronger than ever, we look forward to welcoming more customers to EV ownership in the coming months.”

Across the globe the Nissan LEAF is the world’s top selling EV, with more than 380,000 units sold since the original car was launched in 2010.
