Australia: Aeaf wins for small cars

STEVE LAGUE, MOTORING EDITOR, The West Australian May 7, 2011, 6:15 pm
The Nissan Leaf electric vehicle, which will be launched in Australia next year, has edged out the new BMW 5 Series and Audi A8 for top spot in the prestigious 2011 World Car of the Year.

It was an historic award for the world’s first affordable mass- market, all-electric vehicle, which was previously named European Car of the Year.


The small city car was chosen from an initial entry list of 39 new vehicles, then a short list of 10, then three finalists – the Leaf, the Audi A8 and the BMW 5 Series.

In spite of the lack of a big recharging network and its limited range, the Leaf represents a technical and commercial bet that might otherwise satisfy many potential consumers, especially where public incentives will come to reduce the paying price.
