Nissan’s global sales of its electric vehicles have surpassed the million unit milestone, with almost one third going to European customers.

Since its launch in December 2010, the Nissan LEAF has sold more than 650,000 units worldwide and is the biggest seller overall.

Production for European markets was localised in 2013 to Nissan's Sunderland Plant, and more than 263,000 have been sold in the region to date.

Nissan then launched its first electric van in Europe, the e-NV200 in 2014, which went on to sell more than 45,000 units across the continent, before the introduction of its successor, the Nissan Townstar EV, earlier this year. Nissan also started deliveries of the Nissan Ariya all-electric crossover in 2022. 

In total, Europe is the biggest market, having taken 320,000 Nissan EVs. Japan and China are equal in second place with 230,000 and North America trails with 210,000.

Nissan plans to launch 19 EV models globally by 2030. Two future EVs have already been announced for the European market, a new-generation electric crossover previewed by the CHILL-OUT concept model, and an all-new Micra that will become the entry-level vehicle in Nissan's electrified line-up.

The new Micra will be fully electric
