“For nearly 85 years, Nissan’s story has been a story of innovation to make peoples’ lives better. Today we are continuing that story through Nissan Intelligent Mobility, and especially through the all-new Nissan LEAF, which remains the best-selling electric vehicle in the world,” Galli said. “The all-new Nissan LEAF, which was unveiled in Thailand at the Motor Expo late last month, won’t just transform the way people drive. It will also transform the way they live,” he said.
