The Nissan LEAF is the early front runner in the electric car market in the UK: and now it has reached a landmark sales figure, according to thegreencarwesite.co.uk.
With 141 new registrations during November, its sales have now passed the 3,000 marker in the UK alone. The surge in sales during November suggests an increase demand for electric cars in the country with the LEAF boasting a combination of environmentally friendly and economical motoring.
According to Jon Pollock, the Nissan GB sales director, the second generation LEAF has secured more than 1,300 sales in the UK during the last six months. "The LEAF is a true pioneer in every sense and in its lifetime it's already done a huge amount to change attitudes and open minds in the UK and across the world," he said.
"The fact that we have been able to reach the 3,000 mark is a fantastic achievement and shows not only what a wonderful car it is but also that motorists are keen to experience the revolutionary new technology it introduces.
"The low running costs of the LEAF, not to mention its many other benefits, make it an incredibly attractive proposition and we have been seeing steady growth in sales. We expect that trend to continue rising as the model's visibility increases and the rapid charging infrastructure expands across the UK."
The Nissan LEAF is enjoying sales success across the continent too - with more than 16,000 sales across Europe. Meanwhile, global sales have now topped 87,000.
