Nissan receives 37,000 orders for new LEAF EV in Europe
In a recent disclosure by Nissan hinting at a high demand for its new LEAF electric vehicle (EV), the Japanese automaker has revealed that the orders for the new LEAF in Europe have reached 37,000 units. However, despite the notably high demand for the new LEAF, Nissan has apparently not been able to supply enough units of the electric vehicle.
A total of 12,000 units of the new LEAF -- which was launched 8 months back -- have been delivered by Nissan in Europe thus far in 2018. As a result, overall LEAF deliveries in Europe have now surpassed the ‘100,000 units’ milestone. The 100,000th customer to have purchased the Nissan LEAF in Europe was Susana de Mena of Madrid.
With regard to the decision to purchase the Nissan LEAF EV, Susana de Mena said that after looking around for a suitable EV for two years, she and her husband finally went in for the LEAF because they felt that the vehicle’s “quality, price and specification made it second-to-none.”
Meanwhile, the ‘100,000 units’ milestone for the LEAF in Europe has been achieved by Nissan within a few weeks of hitting the same milestone in Japan, which is Nissan’s home market.
With Nissan having recently revealed that it has received 37,000 orders for the new LEAF in Europe, it is evident that the automaker is apparently receiving one order of the new LEAF from European customers every 10 minutes.
