Nissan Sunderland Plant is celebrating the production of 250,000 LEAFs in the UK.

Demonstrating the ability of the LEAF to act as a mobile power plant, the lights on a 32-foot Christmas tree are being powered by the vehicle’s battery, using V2X technology.

Alan Johnson, vice president manufacturing at Nissan Sunderland Plant, said: “Passing a quarter of a million Nissan LEAF is a tremendous milestone, and demonstrates the electric vehicle manufacturing expertise we have built up at our plant over the past decade.

“This year we have completely electrified the plant’s line-up with the new versions of Qashqai and Juke launched, so lighting up the Christmas tree with our original EV is a spectacular and appropriate way to end 2022.”

The Nissan LEAF, built in Sunderland for more than a decade, was the world’s first mass-market electric vehicle.

In 2021 Nissan’s Sunderland Plant was announced as the home of EV36ZERO, a £1bn flagship electric vehicle manufacturing ecosystem bringing together electric vehicles, renewable energy and battery production.
