While celebrating National Plug In Day on Sept. 23, Nissan recognized the more than 37,000 Leaf owners around the world with the following infographic.
According to Nissan, all Leafs sold have already covered more than 100 million gas-free miles since the vehicle’s launch in December 2010.
While nothing is perfect in the Leaf’s world – with battery capacity issues in very hot climates for example – the electric car is working mostly as promised and serves well as a commuter vehicle.
Renault-Nissan’s path with the Leaf along with investment of billions of dollars globally contrasts markedly with Toyota’s recent let’s wait and see stance towards EVs.
