Today, Sylvie Lailler became the 10,000th Nissan LEAF customer in Europe, further cementing the ground-breaking zero emission car’s status as the best-selling electric vehicle of all time.
Mrs. Lailler is a nurse who will be driving the Nissan LEAF on visits to elderly patients and using it with her family at the weekends. She picked up her Nissan LEAF from the Mantes-la-Jolie dealership near Paris, near where she lives.
Mrs. Lailler purchased the 100% electric family car after being impressed on the test drive: “I purchased the car because of the low running costs really make sense for my work. I needed a proper family car and I wanted a zero emission vehicle to replace my diesel hatchback, the Nissan LEAF was the best choice. My family were reluctant to get an electric vehicle, but after the test drive my husband told me he wanted it to drive to work, he will not get the keys from me easily though!”
The Nissan LEAF went on sale in Europe in March 2011 in a handful of markets and is now available across the region as the demand for electric vehicles increases.
The new Nissan LEAF, which is being built in the UK will go on sale across Europe next month, with over 100 changes and upgrades inspired by real life customer feedback.
With more than 25,000 units in the U.S. and 62,000 around the world, the Nissan LEAF is world’s best-selling electric vehicle of all time.[wzslider height=”400″ lightbox=”true”]
