What do you get when you combine the world's best-selling zero emission vehicle with innovative paint technology that repels mud, rain and everyday dirt? Answer: a very special Nissan LEAF electric vehicle that might just be the "world's cleanest car."
During the 38th Schneider Electric Paris Marathon last month, Nissan celebrated the runners' endurance and determination in an atypical and disruptive way by awarding for the first time the "Nissan Electric Endurance Prize."
The Nissan LEAF continues to make automotive history, becoming the best-selling electric vehicle ever with global sales of more than 100,000 units and U.S. sales approaching 50,000. Collectively, it is estimated that owners in 35 countries have saved more than $28 million in gasoline costs – since the zero-emissions LEAF requires none.
The 100,000th all-electric Nissan LEAF has been purchased by a customer in the United Kingdom. The Nissan LEAF, the world's first mass-produced zero emissions vehicle, remains the best-selling EV in history with a 45% market share.
Three years ago, Anyo-in Temple’s Chief Priest Wasei Hirai was one of the first people to take home a Nissan LEAF electric car. Earlier this month, he sat down with the Global Media Center to reflect on EV ownership as global sales reach 100,000, with a new customer halfway across the world in the UK.
