Renault Nissan has hit a milestone of 350,000 electric vehicles sold with its popular LEAF and other electric vehicles, holding its position as the leading EV seller in the world. August also marked an important milestone for the company, when it sold 100,000 vehicles in a single year, a new record for EVs.
More than 230,000 LEAFs have been sold since it was introduced in 2010, making it the most popular electric car in the world. Renault is also the best-selling EV brand in Europe and recently delivered its 100,000th electric vehicle to a customer in Norway in person.
The Renault-Nissan partnership is the only auto group in the world that sells a wide range of electric vehicles, including the LEAF and several others like the e-NV200, a commercial vehicle that is mostly used in Europe and Japan. Renault sells four EVs of its own: the ZOE, the Kangoo Z.E. van, the SM3 Z.E. sedan, and the Twizy, which is a two-seater used for city commutes.
Renault Nissan continues to innovate and push for better range and safety, setting its eventual dual goal as an entire lineup of cars with “zero emissions and zero fatalities.” In recent years Renault Nissan has dramatically improved the range of all its vehicles as well as developing advanced driver assist technologies.
