Ahead of tomorrow's official sales announcement, Nissan took to Facebook to celebrate a LEAF sales milestone:

"The Nissan LEAF has done it again! Breaking the record for total LEAFs sold in the month of May."

"Please welcome the 3,000 new Nissan LEAF owners with your Likes."

And this post on Twitter:

"The #NissanLEAF is breaking monthly records for total LEAFs sold. Please welcome 3,000 new owners! #LEAFNation"

With 3,000 (or perhaps even more) sold in May, the Nissan LEAF finally broke past the 3,000-unit sales barrier.  The previous high water mark for LEAF sales in a single month was 2,529 in December 2013.

The Chevy Volt was previously the only plug-in vehicle to exceed 3,000 sales in a single month in the US (August 2013: 3,351 units), but now the LEAF joins the 3,000-unit ranks.

Congrats to the 3,000 new Nissan LEAF owners and congrats to Nissan for achieving this sales milestone.  We will be able to release the exact result tomorrow  morning (June 3rd) along with all the other plug-in sales.
