Every parent automaker likes to keep track of what its ‘siblings’ are doing in the world and then bring up facts and milestones into your face. Just like that coworker of yours who keep pictures of her new born literally everywhere and consider it’s her duty to warn everyone that the last night her kid had his first silent nap. Since Nissan is very proud of his popular Leaf fully-electric model, the company just reminded us that the 50,000 units sold milestone has been achieved in the US of A.
The 50,000th silenced frog-faced machine was recently purchased this month by the Bolt family at AutoNation Nissan of Lewisville in Texas. It was a stunning black example trimmed in the SL version, for which they paid $2,500 less thanks to a new state tax rebate.

People in Texas are so enthusiastic about the Nissan Leaf, that even the church where Todd and Lisa Bolt are working is preaching people about the God’s green ways of transportation. They even have an unofficial club called the “Blessed LEAFs Club”, but that’s another story.

Joking or not, the Nissan Leaf is starting to make its name as the world’s most popular electric vehicle now, with nearly 115,000 global sales since its launch in 2010, a similar score with what the Toyota Prius registered in the first two years of sales.

The Leaf is powered by an advanced lithium-ion battery pack and an 80 kW motor that provides a highly responsive and fun-to-drive experience. On a full charge, the battery is good for 84 miles and it can be recharged up to 80 percent in around 30 minutes at an available quick charge point.
