Although we're sure you know, it's our job to remind you that the Nissan Leaf is produced at the Oppama plant, together with Nissan Juke and Cube, while batteries are manufactured at the Automotive Energy Supply Corporation (AESC) in Zama, Japan.
The car will go on sale this month in Japan and in the US while, beginning with early 2011, it will become available in most countries around the world, as Nissan intends to sell it all over the globe. Production will also commence in Smyrna, Tennessee, as well as in Sunderland, England for the European market.
"This is a significant milestone, not only for Nissan and the Renault-Nissan Alliance, but also for the entire automotive industry," said Nissan President and CEO Carlos Ghosn at the Nissan LEAF offline ceremony.
"Consumers are clear. They want sustainable and affordable mobility...and the Alliance is leading the way with cars that deliver exactly that, with the reliability, excitement and performance that consumers demand. The high-quality, innovative Nissan LEAF will radically transform what consumers expect from automobile manufacturers worldwide."
That being said, we'll let you watch the 5-minute clip and see how the world's first-mass-market priced EV takes shape.
