Renault-Nissan Sells Its 100,000th Zero-Emission Vehicle

    The Renault-Nissan Alliance has sold its 100,000th zero-emission car.  The electric cars from Renault and Nissan have driven an estimated 841 million zero-emission kilometers.  This is enough to circle the earth more than 20,000 times.  All together, they represent 53 million litres of oil saved and 124 million kg of   CO2 that have not been emitted.  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.

More than 71,000 people worldwide have bought Nissan LEAF, the world’s best-selling electric vehicle. LEAF makes up more than half of all global sales of pure electric cars. Nissan LEAF won the 2011 World Car of the Year, European Car of the Year 2011and Car of the Year Japan 2011-2012 awards. The top markets for Nissan LEAF are the United States with about 30,000 units, Japan with 28,000 units, and Europe with 12,000 units.

Renault has sold about 30,000 electric vehicles since its first model, Kangoo Van Z.E., went on sale in late 2011. Kangoo Van Z.E. was voted International Van of the Year 2012. Renault leads the electric vehicle market in Europe with a 61% share, including Twizy. Renault’s top markets in Europe are France, Germany and Italy. In addition to the Kangoo Van Z.E., Renault also offers Fluence Z.E. saloon; the two-seat commuter vehicle Twizy; and the ZOE supermini, launched earlier this year. Twizy is Renault’s best-selling model with about 11,000 units sold since it went on sale in early 2012.

The Alliance is the industry leader in EVs and remains fully committed to a zero-emission future, with vehicles that can be recharged using purely renewable energy.

The plug-in cars store energy in a lithium-ion battery that meets or exceeds all environmental and safety standards wherever they are sold. The vehicles can be “topped off” at any charge point, or they can be fully recharged overnight from the convenience of the driver's home, garage or parking deck.

In order to accelerate the uptake of electric vehicles around the world, the Renault-Nissan Alliance is working with government authorities, utility companies and others to rollout a network of charging stations that allow drivers to recharge their cars from zero to 80% capacity in less than 30 minutes.
