Nissan delivers first LEAF cars in Japan

Nissan Motors, on Wednesday, deliver the initial 10 units of its 100 percent electric and zero-emission Nissan LEAF in Japan.

The all electric car, Leaf, which has taken the globe by storm, has delivered 10units to the Kanagawa Prefectural Government. Of which, six will be used for official purpose and the remaining will provide as hire cars to be used in the prefecture’s EV Sharing Model Business, the car-maker said in a statement.

Nissan Motor is predictable to sell 500,000 electric vehicles annually by the end of 2013, Renault Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn had told reporters on eve of the marketplace debut of the Nissan Leaf.

We're going to have to put some efforts into selling the car, but the kind of impulsive demand is going to be driving the sales for the subsequently three years, Ghosn said. There is such a curiosity about the car and notice to the car.
The car has already sold out for this fiscal year in Japan at 6,000 orders and in the U.S. at 20,000, reaching manufacture limits.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has prearranged the 2011 Nissan Leaf a mileage rating of 99 miles per gallon (mpg); besides dubbing the electric car to be the "best" for fuel competence and the environment.
