One year since its global unveil, the new Nissan LEAF continues to blaze a trail with a series of awards and record-breaking sales. Prestigious accolades awarded to the latest Nissan LEAF in the last 12 months include:
The DiarioMotor.com Electric Pushing Award in Spain
The Motor Electric Award in Italy
The 2018 Drive Power Gold Electric Car Award in the UK
LEAF has established a strong reputation for advanced technology as well as efficiency, practicality, comfort and driving dynamics. It took the Best Car of the Year trophy in the electric vehicle and plug-in hybrid category by “L’Automobile et L’Entrprise.”
Additionally, the car received Sweden’s 2018 Miljöbästa Bil (Environment Best Car) award in recognition of its appeal for both private and business users as well as its longer range, advanced technologies, attractive price and energy storage solutions.
LEAF has been widely praised for its Intelligent Integration Technology and ease of use. It can be charged from a regular domestic plug and Nissan wall-mounted units. It can also be charged across an expansive network of over 5,800 fast charging points throughout Europe.
A pioneering charging facility also enables customers to charge their car from the grid and ‘sell’ energy back to energy companies – a concept that scooped the Auto Express Technology Award for innovation in July 2018.
The new LEAF is the icon of Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility strategy; featuring driving assistance technologies such as ProPILOT and ProPILOT Park, and the unique e-Pedal which allows drivers to start, accelerate and decelerate to a complete stop simply through the operation of one pedal. Three-quarters of new LEAF customers have chosen ProPILOT, while e-Pedal has been highlighted as a favourite feature amongst the 27,000 drivers who have taken delivery of their LEAF already this year. New LEAF technology and innovation transforms the driving experience for its customers.
Gareth Dunsmore, Electric Vehicle Director, Nissan Europe, said:
“The new LEAF is an important step towards Nissan’s vision for an intelligent, fully integrated electric vehicle experience. The fact the LEAF has resonated so strongly with both motorists and critics shows just how talented it is.”
