Nissan LEAF Earns Second Consecutive IHS Automotive Loyalty Award

2016 Nissan LEAF

The Nissan LEAF has earned its second consecutive IHS Automotive Loyalty Award, proving that customers still can’t get enough of the all-electric Nissan car.

The LEAF was honored during the Automotive News World Congress held in conjunction with the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, which speaks even further to the award’s prestige.

Throughout the year, IHS Automotive analyzes loyalty among automotive consumers, determined when a household that already owns a new vehicle returns to the market to purchase or lease another new vehicle of the same make, model, or manufacturer.

“We know that Nissan LEAF drivers love the benefits of driving electric—zero spending on gas, quick acceleration and the feeling of driving an environmentally friendly vehicle, to name a few—which is why so many LEAF owners come back and buy another LEAF,” said Andrew Speaker, Nissan’s director of Electric Vehicle Sales and Marketing.

With more than 89,000 U.S. sales and 200,000 global sales, the Nissan LEAF is by far and away the best-selling all-electric car in the world. At Nissan of Lake Charles, its EPA-rated range of 107 miles on a single charge has given customers a taste of efficiency that has them constantly coming back.  What do you think of the Nissan LEAF?  Is it your number one choice for electric vehicle?

Next-Generation Nissan LEAF Should Get 310 Miles on a Single Charge

 

Nissan LEAFThe Nissan LEAF has now surpassed the Prius as the most popular and ubiquitous nameplate in the hybrid/electric vehicle market. With tons of technology, standard features, and—of course—incredible efficiency, it’s no wonder customers and critics alike both love the LEAF. Now, the next-generation LEAF will take that formula to an all-new level with a range that allows the electric car to go 310 miles on a single charge.

While the Next-Generation Nissan LEAF will come farther in the future, the 2016 model currently gets 110 miles on a single charge, thanks to a new, more powerful battery. This increase is already an improvement on the 2015 model, which had a range of 84 miles. While the 110-mile range is impressive, the next-generation LEAF is sure to knock the socks off of the industry.

Nissan just premiered a prototype of the vehicle, which comes with a new electric powertrain to push that range up over 300 miles on a single charge. Obviously, an electric vehicle with the same range as a gas-powered vehicle would be quite a welcome innovation to the new car market.
