Nissan was the first automaker to launch a mass-market, 100 percent electric vehicle with the introduction of the Nissan LEAF in 2010. Fast forward to 2016, and the Nissan LEAF remains the best-selling all-electric vehicle of all time, globally. Earlier this year, Nissan reaffirmed its status as a leader in the development of zero emission technology with the launch of the Nissan LEAF 30 kWh which goes 26 percent further than the previous model, delivering up to 250km of driving range on a single charge, beating all of its competitors within the segment.
