Nissan has today announced today its electric vehicle market expansion plans for 2012. The zero emissions LEAF hatch will be rolled out across Europe from ten times as many dealers than before, as the network will be expanded to 1,000 authorized traders by the end of the year. What’s more, the car will be on sale in 24 of the most important European markets by 2013.
What’s more, all of the one thousand authorized dealers will have their own quick charging station installed, while an additional 400 will be installed in communities to increase charging availability.

By the start of summer 2012, Nissan will have already started EV battery production for the Leaf in Britain. These will be made in Sunderland, were the Leaf will most likely be built in Europe soon.

“All of these actions will lay the foundations for the introduction of the European-built Nissan LEAF at the Sunderland plant in the UK. Building the car in the UK will reduce lead times, increase supply, mitigate currency fluctuations and reduce the carbon footprint of bringing the car to the customer,” Nissan says.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
