Nissan Leaf Leading Despite Range Issue

By  | 

While there is a lot to love about the Nissan Leaf, there is no denying that the vehicle has a shorter range when compared to their rivals which are not the best position to be in if you are a full EV model but it looks like even that could not stop the Nissan Leaf from claiming the best-selling EV spot in Europe.

Nissan is still struggling to get the ball rolling for the Nissan Leaf in the US but it is doing better than expected in Europe as it was named the best-selling electric vehicle in Europe for the first half of 2018.

Between January to June, there have been more than 18,000 Leaf EVs registered, double the amount in the US and Canada. The current Nissan Leaf is powered by a 40kWh battery that offers about 151miles of range which is not the longest as most of the EVs are now offering more than 200miles of range.

Nissan did announce that they will be releasing the 60kWh battery pack soon which will offer more than 200miles of range.
