Leaf Powers Ahead As Europe's Best-Selling Car VehicleThu, 13 Feb 2014
THE NUMBERS are in and, while recent months have seen a flurry of new electric car launches, one car reigns supreme in this emerging sector.
With a record-breaking 2013 behind it, Nissan’s Leaf topped the charts in Europe with 11,120 sales – a massive 204 percent rise compared to 2012.
Furthermore Nissan is keen to point out that the Leaf is head and shoulders above its nearest rivals, achieving 25 percent more sales than its closest competitor.
With a combination of generous tax, charging and parking concessions aimed boosting electric car take-up, it’s no surprise to learn that Norway is the epicenter of Leaf ownership in Europe. It’s also the market leader in the UK.
