“Largely due to the success of the new Nissan LEAF”
Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, currently the world’s biggest car manufacturing group, announced 5.1% of sales growth during the first six months of 2018, to 5.54 million cars.
The Alliance, led by Carlos Ghosn, also increased its plug-in car sales this year. Mostly thanks to the;
- new Nissan LEAF,
- higher-capacity battery in Renault Kangoo Z.E. and
- expansion of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV to North America.
The biggest gains are noted in Europe though.
