WhichEV has recognized Nissan's LEAF with a Lifetime Achievement award. Great validation for all the work done over the past 12 years to elevate the status of electric vehicles. The 2010 LEAF introduction was the first for a mass-market electric car. Since then, over 605,000 copies have been sold all over the world.
Nissan claims that the LEAF was the first of its kind when it was released to the public more than ten years ago. The decision to make an electric automobile was considered "brave" at the time. Nonetheless, now, the majority of carmakers have developed electric versions of their vehicles.
