WLMG celebrates as Nissan Leaf sales cruise to 40,000+

Since its launch the all electric Nissan Leaf has sold 42,700. The eco friendly car recently gave those caught by hurricane Sandy another reason to be thankful for their purchases when it provided emergency power to their homes.

 
PRLog - Nov. 12, 2012 - WLMG, a chain of car dealers in the South of England, today celebrated Nissan’s announcement that sales of the all-electric Nissan Leaf have reached 42,700. This makes the Leaf the world's top-selling electric car.

The Nissan Leaf has lived up to its name in providing a Leading, Environmentally friendly, Affordable, Family car since it was first introduced to the Japanese and American markets in December 2010. The US Environmental Protection Agency gives the car an official range of 117 kilometres (or 73 miles). The all-electric Leaf produces no tailpipe pollution or greenhouse gas emissions at the point of operation, and its uptake will greatly help to reduce car drivers’ dependence on petrol.

Some of the American Nissan Leaf owners who were caught by Hurricane Sandy recently discovered a surprising new use for this versatile vehicle. Taking their cue from knowledge sharing on the MyNissanLeaf fan site residents made sure their Leaf’s 24 kWh lithium-ion battery was fully charged and used DC-to-AC converters and a pair of cables to power their fridges, lights, microwaves and coffee machines.  The Leaf’s DC-DC converter can supply up to 1.7kW of electricity, but is safest supplying between 1.0 and 1.5 kW. It is estimated that with careful, circumspect electrical usage the Leaf could intermittently power appliances for three to four days.

WLMG (http://www.wlmg.co.uk) own a chain of Nissan car dealerships in the UK and has worked closely with Nissan to market the best-selling electric car, including distributing a car to one of the ten lucky winners of Nissan’s The Big Turn On competition to promote electric driving. For WLMG there are more reasons than ever before to consider the benefits of going electric.
