Nissan announced on World EV Day, which highlights and promotes the role of electric vehicles (EVs) in the move to net-zero and decarbonisation, that it has achieved the impressive milestone of a quarter of a million fully electric vehicle sales in Europe. This marks a new step in a decade of success for Nissan electric mobility.
As the EV revolution continues to accelerate, Nissan celebrates the latest milestone in its commitment to advancing electric mobility, with the iconic LEAF achieving 208,000 sales and the highly versatile e-NV200 van securing 42,000 customers in Europe.
Since they were introduced in 2010 and 2014 respectively, LEAF and the e-NV200 have blazed a trail in the field of electric mobility. The LEAF was the first mass-market EV, and the e-NV200 establishing itself as a pioneer in electrified mass-market vans.
Leon Dorssers, Nissan AMIEO senior vice president of sales and marketing, said “Every bright idea starts with a spark. Just as the Nissan LEAF sparked the birth of modern EVs when it was introduced in 2010.
“Today it continues to bring innovative technologies and advanced zero-emission powertrains to drivers around the globe, making the bright idea a mass-market reality.”
Emmanuelle Serazin, Nissan director of corporate sales & LCV Europe, said: “The Nissan e-NV200 has taken the electric revolution to the world of LCVs.
“It has offered the perfect balance of sustainability, practicality, convenience and low ownership costs and we look forward to a new chapter in our electrification strategy with a new electrified Van coming soon.”
As part of its ongoing commitment to electric mobility and progressing towards a more sustainable future, Nissan recently announced a £1 billion flagship EV Hub. EV36Zero is a world-first EV manufacturing ecosystem, establishing the blueprint for the future of the automotive industry.
Accelerating Nissan’s journey towards carbon neutrality, the transformational project combines electric vehicles, renewable energy and battery production, centred around Nissan’s Sunderland plant in the UK.
Building on its crossover and electrification expertise, Nissan also confirmed a new all-electric crossover, with the new model to be produced in Sunderland and promising next-generation vehicle styling, efficiency and battery technology.
With the acceleration of the transformation plan, a new period of sustainable growth is beginning for the business, with 75 percent of the sales-mix to be electrified in Europe by the end of 2023. Nissan plans to be carbon-neutral for 2050.
