The Nissan LEAF has been recognized by the IHS Automotive as the best Non-Luxury Traditional Compact Car, making it the only plug-in vehicle to be included in the annual IHS Automotive Loyalty Awards.
The awards attempt to identify which models do the best job at convincing buyers to come back for more. IHS Automotive determines loyalty when a household that owns a new vehicle returns to the market to purchase or lease another new vehicle of the same make, model, or manufacturer.
“While the majority of original buyers were electric vehicle enthusiasts, we’re now seeing more and more ‘regular’ car buyers fall in love with LEAF because of its many financial benefits, fun-to-drive nature and roomy interior,” said Toby Perry, Nissan’s director of marketing.
Last year, Nissan shattered the plug-in vehicle sales record with 30,200 LEAF vehicles sold in the U.S. We can’t say we’re surprised at Rothrock Nissan.
With seating up to five passengers, a driving range of 84 miles, and an MPGe rating of 126 city, 101 highway, and 114 combined, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better plug-in deal than the LEAF.
