Chris Beers: Portrait of an EV owner

Chris Beers: Portrait of an EV owner

The Renault-Nissan Alliance has sold its 200,000th electric vehicle – by far more than all other major automakers combined. The milestone was reached earlier this month and comes four years after the launch of the Nissan LEAF, the world’s first mass-market electric vehicle. Nissan LEAF remains the best-selling electric vehicle in history.

To capture what the first 200,000 consumers love about their electric vehicles, the Alliance has launched a series of videos featuring EV owners on three continents. “I Made the Switch” tells why people bought their electric vehicles and how switching to a zero-emission vehicle has changed their lives.
