Nissan LEAF Sales In Japan Up Almost 1/3 in First Quarter

Nissan is not slowing down in Japan delivering yet again well over 1,000 LEAFs.

In March, it was exactly 1,201 LEAFs delivered, which represents over 77% growth over the March 2013 sales figure of 676.

The whole of 2014 has been strong for Nissan with 4,345 LEAF sales in the first quarter compared to 3,268 in Q1 of 2013.. This mean that Nissan is selling approximately 33% more LEAFs so far this year.

Hopefully, this growth will continue. For now, it's the seventh time in a row sales exceeded a level of 1,200 units and Nissan is on track to sell over 16,500 LEAFs (taking into account average monthly sales). In 2013, LEAF sales were 13,021 in Japan.

At the end of April, Nissan should hit the 40,000-unit bar of LEAF sales in Japan (and 50,000 in U.S. at the same time).
