2018 Nissan LEAF named 2018 World Green Car of the Year

Having earlier this year been named ‘Best Electric Car’ at the 2018 What Car? Awards, the new Nissan LEAF, the world's best-selling electric vehicle, has scooped the "2018 World Green Car" at the 2018 New York International Auto Show.

 

The first all-electric vehicle to win the World Green Car award since the category's inception in 2016, the 2018 Nissan LEAF has been reinvented for its second generation. Available in showrooms today, the new Nissan LEAF combines greater range with a dynamic new design and the latest Nissan Intelligent Mobility features including ProPILOT Assist, e-Pedal and automatic emergency braking.

 

The 2018 Nissan LEAF rose to the top among a list of five initial category entries and was the stand-alone EV in the running. Jurors considered the vehicle's overall environmental impact including tailpipe emissions and fuel consumption upon selecting the overall winner.

 

The previous-generation Nissan LEAF was named "World Car of the Year" in 2011 and remains the only pure electric vehicle to win that award in its 14-year history.
