RENAULT-NISSAN ALLIANCE SELLS ITS 200,000TH ELECTRIC VEHICLE
Posted:
The Renault-Nissan Alliance has sold over 200,000 electric vehicles across the world, equivalent to 58 per cent market share for zero-emission cars. Together, Renault and Nissan EVs have driven approximately 4 billion zero-emission kilometres - enough to circle the earth 100,000 times. Renault-Nissan's EVs represent 200 million litres of fuel saved - enough to fill about 80 Olympic-sized swimming pools. Alliance EVs also represent 450 million kg of CO2 that has not been emitted while driving.

The Alliance sold its 200,000th EV in early November, about four years after the launch of the Nissan LEAF, the world's first mass-market electric vehicle. Nissan LEAF remains the best-selling electric vehicle in history. To capture what the first 200,000 consumers love about their electric vehicles, the Renault-Nissan Alliance has launched the first in a series of videos featuring EV owners on three continents. "I Made the Switch" tells why people bought their electric vehicles and how switching to a zero-emission vehicle has changed their lives.

The first video features Chris Beers, a software engineer from Holliston, Massachusetts, USA, one of many Americans who powers his Nissan LEAF with clean solar energy.

Today, the quick charging network already covers 87 per cent of the UK's motorways. Nissan LEAF is the world's best-selling electric vehicle; Renault led in Europe in October with six electric vehicle models on the road, the Renault-Nissan Alliance is the only global car group with a full range of 100 per cent electric vehicles - and they can be fully charged with purely renewable energy.

In addition to their Nissan and Renault dealerships, Greenhous sell electric or hybrid vehicles at their Vauxhall, Volvo and Toyota showrooms.
