Nissan LEAF sales surpass 100,000 in Japan


YOKOHAMA, Japan – Nissan has sold more than 100,000 Nissan LEAFs in Japan since the model first went on sale.

Nissan launched the first generation of the Nissan LEAF, the world’s first mass-produced electric car, in 2010. Today, the zero-emission Nissan LEAF is the world’s best-selling electric vehicle, with cumulative global sales of more than 300,000 units.

Since announcing its long-term environmental vision 10 years ago, Nissan has been working to reduce so-called “well-to-wheel” CO2 emissions from new vehicles by 90% by 2050 (compared with 2000 levels), and also to reduce CO2 emissions from its corporate activities. The company has been making comprehensive efforts toward building a zero-emission society. These include championing the Nissan LEAF and other zero-emission vehicles; developing the Vehicle-to-Home system that lets Nissan LEAF owners use energy stored in the car’s batteries to power their homes; implementing renewable energy solutions making use of used batteries; and cooperating with other companies and local authorities to establish widely available charging infrastructure.
