Renault-Nissan sells its 100,000th Zero-Emisson car

  • American graduate student took delivery of the 100,000th electric vehicle

  • Renault-Nissan EVs outsell all other major automakers combined

  • Nissan LEAF remains world’s best-selling EV

  • With its latest EV ZOE, Renault expands its zero-emission lineup and reinforces its leadership in Europe

Paris - Electric cars from Renault and Nissan have driven approximately 841 million zero-emission kilometers -- enough to circle the earth more than 20,000 times. Together, they represent 53 million liters of oil saved and 124 million kg of C02 that have not been emitted.

“The age of the mainstream zero-emission vehicle is here,” said Renault-Nissan Alliance Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn. “We expect demand to keep growing as the charging infrastructure develops – and we remain 100% committed to zero-emission technology for the long term.”

Renault-Nissan has sold more zero-emission cars than all other major automakers combined.

The very first EV from the Alliance is a Nissan LEAF owned by engineer Olivier Chalouhi in California’s Silicon Valley. He bought the LEAF when it debuted in December 2010. The 100,000th customer was American graduate student Allison Howard, who became an owner of Nissan LEAF earlier this month and drives the car to Kennesaw State University in Atlanta, Georgia.
