Nissan Leaf the Overwhelming Choice for EV Drivers Worldwide

Nissan Leaf

Although electric vehicles (EV) make up a small percentage of the overall number of vehicles, the number of EVs is growing rapidly. More people have become averse to fossil-fueled cars to the point that even hybrid cars are not an acceptable option. For them, EVs are the best option for vehicles that don’t pollute from the point of operation.

So far, the world leader in EV unit sales is the Nissan Leaf. The car recently passed 100,000 units sold since it was first released in 2010. Nissan expects the market to mushroom with a total of 1.5 million units worldwide by 2020. read more »
