The Nissan LEAF has done it again — this all-electric car has walked away with another accolade under its belt. The LEAF, which is considered the world’s best-selling electric vehicle, was recently named the winner of the 2019 AJAC Canadian Green Car of the Year awards during the Vancouver International Auto Show.

“As the pioneer of the world’s first mass-market electric vehicle, we have a duty to offer Canadians an EV that offers more, and continues to spearhead the advancement of the zero-emission segment,” said Joni Paiva, president of Nissan Canada. “We have achieved that with the new Nissan LEAF, which provides the right range at the right price, offering a suite of advanced safety technology, and standard features specifically for Canada.”

To determine the winner of the 2019 AJAC Canadian Green Car of the Year awards, more than 65 AJAC journalists across Canada tested the entries. Each entry is tested on different road surfaces and conditions throughout the year and put to the test during AJAC’s autumn Test Fest event.

This isn’t the only award that the LEAF has won. It was recently named the 2018 World Green Car of the Year. It’s also the first-ever electric car to sell more than 400,000 models globally.

Along with the LEAF, Nissan now offers the all-new Nissan LEAF PLUS, which has more power and offers up to 363 kilometres of range. Contact us here at Avenue Nissan to order this exciting new model.
