The award, given before a crowd of tech industry experts in New York, marks the first international award for the all-new zero-emission Nissan LEAF.
As confirmation of Nissan's leading investment in innovation, the Nissan LEAF 100% electric vehicle with ProPILOT Assist and e-Pedal technologies took the following honors:
• CES Best of Innovation award winner for Vehicle Intelligence and Self-Driving Technology
• CES honoree for Tech for a Better World
"It is a great honor to have this early and important recognition for the new Nissan LEAF," said Daniele Schillaci, Nissan's executive vice president for global marketing and sales, zero-emission vehicles and battery business. "This award recognizes products and technologies that benefit people and the planet, so it is fitting that the new LEAF has been honored. It is more than just a car. It is the icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, our vision to move people to a better world."
The new Nissan LEAF brings a compelling package of everyday-useful innovations and technologies to more people worldwide than any electric vehicle has done before. The car is helping make the world a better place not only through innovation, but also through accessibility to more people.
The new Nissan LEAF goes on sale in early 2018 at LEAF Certified Nissan dealers nationwide.
