Nissan Leaf 2010: World’s first battery-electric car to be built in UK

It has been confirmed that the Nissan Leaf – the world’s first battery-electric car to be mass produced, will be built in the UK, at a Nissan plant in Sunderland.

As reported from the Telegraph, the decision to build the Leaf in the UK, means that 2,250 jobs at the Nissan plant have been secured, while the UK government has also poured £20.7 million into the project.

However, the plant in Sunderland is one of three plants in the world that will produce the Leaf – as there will also be a plant in Japan and USA.

While the Leaf will obviously be a very efficient car for potential owners, it will still manage to churn out a range of 100 miles and a top speed of 90mph.
