Renault-Nissan Alliance sells 250,000th electric vehicle

The Renault-Nissan Alliance  the world's leader in zero-emission mobility  has sold its 250,000th electric vehicle: a white Renault ZOE sold to a French engineer.

The Alliance reached the historic milestone in early June, just under five years after the launch of the all-electric Nissan LEAF, meaning the Alliance now accounts for approximately half of the electric vehicles sold worldwide.

The LEAF remains the best-selling electric vehicle of all time, with more than 180,000 units sold and from January through May, the Alliance sold 31,700 EVs  a 15 per cent increase over the same period of last year.

Carlos Ghosn, chairman and CEO of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, said: "Demand for our electric vehicles continues to grow thanks to government incentives and the expanding charging infrastructure. The positive response of our customers is also driving demand. These vehicles enjoy some of the highest levels of satisfaction rates from our customers around the world."
