“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.
