In celebration of World EV Day, Nissan marked the production of the 500,000th LEAF. With half a million LEAF’s built globally, customers around the world continue to embrace the pioneering 100% electric vehicle.
The milestone was achieved at Nissan’s plant in Sunderland, England, almost a decade after the model first went on sale. The plant has built more than 175,000 LEAF cars since it began producing the model in 2013.
Nissan’s manufacturing facilities in Sunderland continue to craft the LEAF to the highest standards to ensure that every LEAF embodies innovation and excitement, while striving to make advances in more sustainable mobility.
The 500,000th LEAF found its happy owner, Maria Jansen, in Norway.
“My husband and I chose to buy a Nissan LEAF back in 2018, and we loved it,” Jansen said. “We’re very excited to become the proud owners of the 500,000th Nissan LEAF. This car really meets our needs with extended range and enhanced technologies.”
The LEAF offers customers advanced technologies to help enhance safety, comfort and control on the road. These include ProPILOT1 – a “hands-on, eyes-on” system that allows the car to stop, restart and stay centered in its lane – and e-Pedal technology for one-pedal driving.

1ProPILOT is an Advanced Driver Assist technology but cannot prevent collisions. ProPILOT is intended for “Eyes on/ Hands On” for highways only (road separated by Barriers). It is the driver’s responsibility to stay alert, drive safely and be able to take control of the vehicle at any time.
