The 2018 Nissan Leaf Impresses Critics, Earns "2018 World Green Car" Award

The 2018 Nissan Leaf is no stranger to accolades. Chosen by Kelly Blue Book for its coveted 5-Year Cost to Own award, it's likewise been a beacon of praise from drivers and critics alike. Now the much-loved electric car can add another award to its trophy shelf. Nissan, in a recent news release, has confirmed that the 2018 Leaf has been selected as the "2018 World Green Car."

The award was given to Nissan and the Leaf by World Car Awards, at the 2018 New York International Auto Show. While the recognition, on its own, is good news for the Leaf, it's made even better by the fact that the Leaf is the first all-electric vehicle to be chosen for the award since it was first created in 2016. Nissan executives were thrilled with the recognition.

"We're very proud that since Nissan LEAF launched in 2010, we've been able to put more than 300,000 zero-emission electric vehicles on the road worldwide, helping to reduce carbon footprints around the globe," said Daniele Schillaci, a Management Committee Chairman and Executive Vice President for Nissan Global Marketing and Sales. "We're honored to be recognized by this esteemed jury and proud to continue to expand the vision of Nissan Intelligent Mobility."

Attractive, well-equipped and, of course, incredibly efficient, the Nissan Leaf has emerged as a favorite among of the Nissan lineup. One of the most popular electric sedans on the current market, the 2018 model impressed efficiency-minded drivers with its maximum electric range of 151 miles.
