ERA OF ZERO-EMIS­SION MO­BIL­ITY NOT FAR

Qatar Today - - AUTO NEWS -

The Re­nault-Nissan Al­liance, the world's leader in zero-emis­sion mo­bil­ity, has sold its 250,000th elec­tric ve­hi­cle: a white Re­nault ZOE sold to a French engi­neer.

The Al­liance reached the his­toric mile­stone in early June, 4 1/2 years af­ter the launch of the Nissan LEAF, the world's first mass-mar­ket ze­roe­mis­sion ve­hi­cle. The Al­liance to­day ac­counts for about half of the elec­tric ve­hi­cles sold world­wide. Nissan LEAF re­mains the best-selling elec­tric ve­hi­cle of all time, with more than 180,000 units sold.

From Jan­uary through May, the Al­liance sold about 31,700 EVs – up nearly 15% over the same pe­riod of last year.

“De­mand for our elec­tric ve­hi­cles con­tin­ues to grow thanks to gov­ern­ment in­cen­tives and the ex­pand­ing charg­ing in­fra­struc­ture,” said Car­los Ghosn, Chair­man and CEO of the Re­nault-Nissan Al­liance. “The pos­i­tive re­sponse of our cus­tomers is also driv­ing de­mand. These ve­hi­cles en­joy some of the high­est lev­els of sat­is­fac­tion rates from our cus­tomers around the world.”
