A nurse from Paris has become the 10,000th Nissan LEAF customer in Europe, further cementing the ground-breaking zero emission car’s status as the best-selling electric vehicle of all time.

Lailler will be driving the Nissan LEAF on visits to patients and using it with her family at the weekends.

The Nissan LEAF went on sale in Europe in March 2011 in a handful of markets and is now available across the region as the demand for electric vehicles increases. Nissan Europe Director of Electric Vehicle, Jean-Pierre Diernaz is delighted to have hit the 10,000 sales milestone: "This is an important moment for electric cars in Europe and comes at a time where we are seeing a sales momentum building for the Nissan LEAF across the region. In March we sold over 1,000 LEAF models, which was the best month since the car was launched. In April we were the second best selling car overall in Norway."
