Over 10,000 Nissan LEAFs have now been sold in the UK since the launch of the pure electric vehicle in 2011.

In the first half of 2015, Nissan achieved 2,964 LEAF sales in the UK, up 68.4% on the same period last year, taking the total number of LEAFs sold since the vehicle’s launch to 10,161.

Of those sales, the majority of units were sold in the last 12 months (51.7%) and predominantly to retail customers with almost 71.2% of LEAFs registered in the retail channel.

The Nissan LEAF also outsold all other pure electric models combined by more than two-to-one in the first half of 2015, commanding a market share of 63.3%.

The news comes as a new Acenta+ grade is added to the LEAF line-up.
