Nissan LEAF Wins 2011 GreenFleet "Electric Vehicle of the Year"

Industry News / 12 Comments

The well-thought of EV has picked up yet another award to add its already impressive collection.

To add to its impressive collection of awards including 2011 World Car of the Year and 2011 European Car of the Year, the Japanese automaker has now also been adjudged to have "the best performing and most suitable electric vehicle in its class." Voted for by GreenFleet: a UK firm recognizing excellence in environmental fleet management and green transport, Marketing Manager Colin Boyton said the LEAF was a worthy winner, and given the competition we find it hard to disagree.

"With five-door practicality, a generous boot, a high level of spec, and most importantly, a 110 mile range, the Nissan LEAF is the resounding choice this year. Add to that the take-up in fleets, from all over the UK, and it certainly means the Nissan LEAF is now the market leader, and will continue to make in-roads into fleets looking to embrace EV technology." Barry Beeston, Nissan Motor GB's Fleet Sales Director said, "A growing number of fleets are beginning to switch on to how Nissan LEAF can provide drivers with a good combination of everyday practicality and zero emissions when in use."
