Nissan LEAF owners cover more miles on average than ICE drivers


Nissan has revealed that European owners of the battery-electric Nissan LEAF travel more than 50 percent further per year (10,307 miles) than the European average for a petrol/diesel vehicle (6,721 miles).

Spanish Nissan LEAF drivers come out on top, covering on average more than 228 miles each week, Swedish drivers (211 miles) come second and the UK third with 201 miles.

According to latest figures, drivers of traditional petrol or diesel powered cars covered an average of 129 miles per week, in comparison to the average 198 miles Nissan LEAf drivers in Europe drive.

The Nissan LEAF the best-selling electric vehicle in history, with over 150,000 LEAF vehicles sold globally, more than 31,000 of which have been sold in Europe.

These statistics follow on from LEAF drivers recently clocking up an impressive 1 billion electric kilometres worldwide.

Jean-Pierre Diernaz, Director of Electric Vehicles for Nissan in Europe, said: “Since the beginning we have said that the Nissan LEAF is much more than just a city car or second car and now we can show the data that proves this. Our customers frequently tell us that they buy the Nissan LEAF as a second car, but end up using it far more than their other vehicle and the information we receive from CarWings reinforces that message.”
