European bought 10.000 Leaf Electric Hatchbacks

Japanese carmaker Nissan has made an official announcement regarding thee Leaf. According to the manufacturer, they have managed to deliver 10.000 Leafs in Europe. The 10.000th was sold to a French customer this last week. The lucky owner is actually a nurse who will be driving her new Leaf on visits to elderly patients and will use it for weekends with her family. The dealership that managed to sell the car was the Mantes-la-Jolie dealership located near Paris. The lucky new owner said that she has purchased the car after being impressed on the test drive. The woman also liked the low running costs and the fact that is has zero CO2 emissions. We all know that poor air quality affects us all and this is why the nurse feels now better that she is not adding to that by driving an electric car and it does make sense. In case you did not know or in case you forgot, the new electric model went on sale in Europe in March 2011, but in only a few markets. Now, the Nissan Leaf is available across the region. Be selling 10.000 units it makes this moment great for all the ones involved in the process. This is actually an important moment for electric cars in Europe and we do understand why. Nissan Europe Director of Electric Vehicle, Jean-Pierre Dernaz declared that in March they have managed to sell more than 1.000 Leaf models which has been the best month since the car was launched. The next month, the model became the second best-selling car overall in Norway which is something really impressive. Apparently a revised Leaf will go on sale across Europe next month. The new model is being built in the UK and the model features more than 100 upgrades and changes, but we do not know more.
