Nissan LEAF National Drie Electric Week

If you’d like to praise the Nissan LEAF, then you’d better get in line. No, like, literally. Last week was National Drie Electric Week, a nationwide celebration intended to heighten awareness regarding the surge in aailability of plug-in electric vehicles. And, while the Nissan LEAF wasn’t the lone participant in the festiities, it was certainly among the most notable.

As part of the celebration, the electric vehicles set a Guinness World Record for largest number of EVs in a parade at once, with 507. And of that number, most were Nissan LEAFs. According to Toby Perry, director of marketing for Nissan’s electric vehicles, the front-and-center spot for the Nissan LEAF was never in doubt. “We are currently at around 61,000 sales in the United States since the launch of LEAF four years ago,” he explained. “It is number one in the market (and) number one in the world. It is a natural fit for an opportunity like this to come out and be at this event and set a Guinness World Record on largest number of electric vehicles in a parade at any given time.” As part of the event, similar celebrations were held nationwide, from Hawaii to Vermont. And its mission was certainly accomplished: to showcase the fun and conenient lifestyle associated with Nissan LEAF ownership. And, with plug-in sales reportedly hitting the quarter-million mark in the US just two weeks ago on September 10th, this doesn’t look to slow down anytime soon.
