Nissan Leaf battery power
Five years on, Nissan reports 99.99% battery success rate across Europe;
More reliable than a petrol or diesel engine, according to industry averages;
Leaf is the world’s best-selling all-electric car, with over 165,000 sold globally.
NISSAN is claiming its all-electric Leaf has 99.99% of its battery units remaining entirely fit for purpose after five years on the road.
Just three of the 35,000 Leafs sold in Europe since launch have suffered failed battery units – a fraction of the equivalent industry-wide figure for defects affecting traditional petrol or diesel engines.
Jean-Pierre Diernaz, director of electric vehicles for Nissan in Europe, said:
“The facts speak for themselves. The rate of Nissan Leaf battery faults is negligible, even the most ardent critic cannot argue with that.
“The battery technology is just part of our success story. With over 165,000 customers globally, it’s clear that we’re not the only people who are thrilled by the success of this state-of-the-art technology.”
