Renault-Nissan Alliance’s electric milestone
The Renault-Nissan Alliance has sold 350,000 electric vehicles since December 2010, when the Nissan LEAF went on sale.
The Alliance achieved the historic milestone in August, while also setting an industry record of 100,000 EVs sold in a single year.
The Alliance today accounts for half of the EVs sold worldwide. The Nissan LEAF remains the industry’s best-selling EV ever, with more than 230,000 units sold globally. Renault is the best-performing EV brand in Europe.
“This historic milestone confirms our customers’ recognition of the benefits of Renault and Nissan electric vehicles,” Alliance Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn said. “Our commitment to contribute toward a zero-emissions world by bringing to the market a full range of affordable EVs makes Renault-Nissan the indisputable leader in EV technology.”
The Renault-Nissan Alliance is the only global car group with a wide range of zero-emission vehicles for personal and business use. In addition to the LEAF, Nissan also sells the e-NV200. Along with the ZOE, Renault also sells the Twizy, a two-seat, urban commuter vehicle.
