While looking for progress in electric car sales in Japan we see that the Nissan LEAF has already exceeded its 2012 level (11,115 units).
It happened thanks to the 1,306 units sold in November, bringing the YTD total for 2013 to 11,786.
Last month's result is however on par with the 1,312 LEAFS sold in November 2012.
Once December's results are in, we expect to see LEAF sales post approximately a 20% gain in Japan for 2013.
A total of 276,399 cars were sold (excluding kei-cars) in November of 2013 in Japan, which means LEAF sales for the month were at less than 0.5% market share.
From December 2010 through the end of this November, Nissan sold in Japan over 33,230 LEAFs.
