Both the Nissan LEAF and QASHQAI have been awarded at the 2011 Fleet World Honours. The Nissan LEAF was presented with the Environmental Award while the Nissan QASHQAI was named Best SUV.

The Fleet World Honours are an annual presentation, given to those motor manufacturers, service companies and individuals who have achieved the highest possible level of excellence in their sector, judged by the editorial team from Fleet World.

Fleet World editor, Steve Moody, said: "Until the Nissan LEAF, electric cars have been a consideration for only the most particular role in a business. Now though, the LEAF's practical, four-seat configuration, clever use of iPhone integration and sat nav, as well as class-leading range mean that more fleets will be able to use an EV. And as an added bonus, it's great fun to drive too.

Talking about the Nissan QASHQAI he said, "It continues to defy all attempts to knock it off its number one pedestal, selling in vast numbers, despite being in one of the most competitive sector in the market. Last year, more efficient new models helped keep it there."
