• Two thirds of Europe’s Nissan LEAF e+ 3.ZERO Limited Edition allocation has been sold after just one month on sale
  • First customer deliveries scheduled for summer 2019
  • Performance, range and personalisation upgrades make the Nissan LEAF a more attractive EV ownership proposition than ever
  • The new Nissan LEAF was the best selling EV across Europe in 2018

PARIS, France (February 12, 2019) – Unprecedented demand for the latest version of the Nissan LEAF electric vehicle (EV) has seen pre-orders hit the 3,000 mark, a month after the new model was unveiled at CES in Las Vegas.

The new Nissan LEAF e+ 3.ZERO Limited Edition, which is fitted with a 62kWh battery, has proven to be a very attractive proposition on the continent. Pre-orders of the new model currently total more than 3,000, which puts the Nissan LEAF in prime position to achieve record sales once again in 2019 after a very successful 2018.

Norway is currently leading the charge with pre-orders reaching almost half of the 3,000 units. LEAF was the top-selling car overall in Norway in 2018.

Motorists looking for a more eco-friendly and uncompromised driving experience continue to be drawn by the car’s all-round capability. The Nissan LEAF e+ 3.ZERO Limited Edition has a power output of 160 kWh (217 PS), and an expected range of up to 239 miles** on a single charge.

Also unveiled to much acclaim at CES, the Nissan LEAF 3.ZERO with a 40 kWh battery is available to order now. Based on the award-winning Nissan LEAF 40 kWh, the Nissan LEAF 3.ZERO adds a number of personalisation options including new colours and a contrasting roof, adding appeal for EV customers looking for a car with real visual presence.

Ken Ramirez, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Nissan Europe said: “The overwhelmingly positive response to the Nissan LEAF e+ 3.ZERO Limited Edition shows just how appealing it is to own a Nissan EV. It’s no wonder the Nissan LEAF is the best-selling EV in Europe and the number one selling car overall in Norway.

“The Nissan LEAF combines leading environmental credentials with outstanding driving dynamics, performance and an enviable roster of technology. The Nissan LEAF e+ 3.ZERO Limited Edition is the highest expression of our record-breaking EVs and we look forward to starting deliveries to customers in the coming months.”

Along with a generous standard specification and new NissanConnect infotainment system, the new LEAF 3.ZERO models both feature e-Pedal and ProPILOT. These widely acclaimed Intelligent Driving technologies are transforming the driving experience.

The e-Pedal is a new driving experience for many, allowing the driver to start, accelerate, decelerate and stop using only the accelerator pedal. This delivers a seamless, smooth drive and maximum control to the driver through enhanced pedal feedback.

ProPILOT is an advanced driving assistance technology which works on single-lane highways. A ‘hands-on, eyes-on’ system, it allows the car to stop, restart and stay centred in its lane in higher-speed cruising and lower-speed congested traffic scenarios. The technology reduces driving stress and fatigue, enhancing driver confidence behind the wheel.

The consistent high demand for the Nissan LEAF secured its crown as the best-selling EV overall in Europe for 2018, with more than 40,000* sold across the continent. In addition, the Nissan LEAF remains the world's best-selling EV, with more than 380,000 units sold globally since the original car launched in 2010.

The new LEAF is the icon of #NissanIntelligentMobility, helping to pioneer a future which brings together intelligent power, intelligent driving and intelligent integration.
