LEAF Takes In The Sights...And A Charge
The total worldwide Nissan LEAF sales through the end of November was at least 88,500 units.
Nissan sold to date over 40,000 LEAFs in U.S., over 16,000 in Europe and likely over 32,500 in Japan.
A small, but still significant number of LEAFs were delivered to other countries around the globe since the LEAF launched in late 2010 in the US and Japan and early 2011 in Europe.
When we add all the figures up, this mean that U.S. has ~45% market share for LEAF sales. Current sales in U.S. are on similar level as in Japan and the whole of Europe.
Collecting number for different countries, we can show (via our fancy pie chart) how the LEAF market share is shaping up in Europe. And wow!!! 43% of the LEAFs sold in Europe went to Norway, not counting hundreds of LEAFs (at least) that Norwegians imported from other countries.
Second is the UK with 19%, a figure which jumped considerably after the launch of the 2013 version made in the UK.
France and Germany come in with 12% and 8% respectively and are the only two countries (aside from Norway and the UK) that exceed the 1,000 LEAFs sold level.
About 3/4 of European LEAF market belong to three countries - Norway, UK and France. And 82% to four countries if we include Germany.
The Netherlands, with 870 LEAFS sold, holds 5%, Spain with 465 is at 3%. Denmark and Switzerland both have ~2%, with 275 and 271 respectively.
The rest of the Europe bought over 1,000 LEAFs so there probably are some countries not present on our chart that likely have ~1% or so.
