This Lady Owns the 500,000th Nissan Leaf Produced

In celebration of World EV Day, Nissan marked the production of the 500,000th Leaf, the world’s first mass-market 100 percent electric car. With half a million Leaf built globally, customers around the world continue to embrace the pioneering zero-emission vehicle.

The milestone was achieved at Nissan’s plant in Sunderland, England, almost a decade after the model first went on sale. The plant has built more than 175,000 Leaf cars since it began producing the model in 2013. Nissan also produces it in Oppama, Japan and in Smyrna, Tennessee.

The Nissan Leaf has won accolades around the world including Car of the Year 2011 in Europe, World Car of the Year 2011, and Car of the Year Japan in 2011 and 2012. More importantly, the car has earned the trust of hundreds of thousands of customers.

The 500,000th Leaf found its happy owner, Maria Jansen, in Norway.

The Leaf offers customers advanced technologies to enhance safety, comfort and control on the road. These include the award-winning ProPILOT – a “hands-on, eyes-on” system that allows the car to stop, restart and stay centered in its lane – and e-Pedal technology for one-pedal driving.

With more than 14.8 billion clean-air kilometers driven since 2010, Leaf owners around the world have helped prevent more than 2.4 billion kilograms of CO2 emissions.

The Nissan Leaf will be launched in the Philippines before March 2021.
