Nissan celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Nissan LEAF and the delivery of 500,000 LEAF vehicles since the model was first introduced.
Produced at plants in the U.S. Japan, and the U.K., the Nissan LEAF is sold in 59 markets around the world. As its battery capacity, performance and efficiency have continued to improve, the LEAF has evolved from a city commuter to a versatile car that meets a wide range of customer needs and lifestyles.
Beyond mobility, the Nissan LEAF has contributed to society by helping power homes and businesses and providing emergency electricity during natural disasters.
Benefits of electric mobility
From the first version in 2010 to the LEAF PLUS introduced in 2019, the 500,000 customers who have chosen the LEAF have helped drivers around the world realize the benefits of electric vehicles.
Nissan estimates that LEAF owners have driven their cars approximately 16 billion kilometres cumulatively, worldwide, preventing more than 2.5 billion kilograms of CO2 emissions from entering the atmosphere.
Today’s customers also expect electric cars to make their daily lives more enjoyable. Nissan is developing a growing lineup of advanced electrified cars and technologies that meet a wide range of needs.
In July this year, Nissan unveiled the Nissan Ariya all-electric crossover. It is a key model in the company’s Nissan NEXT transformation plan, under which Nissan plans to sell 1 million electrified vehicles annually by 2023, including EVs and vehicles with e-POWER electrified powertrains.
