Nissan Leaf Gets European Car Of The Year, First Ever For An Electric Car
Never before has an electric vehicle been named European Car of the Year, but this year that honor falls to the Nissan Leaf. Similar to the North American Car of the Year, which the Chevrolet Volt won, the European COTY is chosen by auto journalists: 58 of them from 23 European countries. So why did the Nissan Leaf win?
When you look at just how efficient the Nissan Leaf is you begin to understand just why EVs will become a part of our everyday life. The award jury seems to have been motivated by a distinctly forward-looking philosophy this year.
