According to latest data released on the Best Selling Cars blog, after the first 9 months of 2013, the Nissan LEAF and Chevrolet Volt took #140 and #138 respectively in the sales ranking of all vehicles.

For the Volt, this is slight drop of one position from #137 at this same point in time in 2012 (despite 3% higher number of deliveries 16,760 vs 16,348).

But the Nissan LEAF got momentum with growth by 208% year-over-year (16,076 vs 5,212).  The Nissan LEAF jumped from #208 after the first 9 months of 2012 to #140, almost even with the Volt.

Both the best selling fully electric and best selling plug-in hybrid still need to double their respective sales to get into TOP 100.

This year, spot #100 is occupied by the BMW X5 with 31,299 sales. To reach such a level, both the Volt and LEAF need to sell over 2,600 copies a month on average. This isn't impossible, but until now Nissan never sold that amount in a single month.

US Cumulative sales for the LEAF is now 35,588 and 48,218 for the Volt.
