LEAF gets a quick charge in Japan
It took more time than we previously anticipated, but finally Nissan has made it - 40,000 LEAFs are now on the Japanese roads.
Such result is achieved after 42 months of deliveries, which brings the long-term average to over 950 units per month. (Nissan posted 50,000 sold in the US last month - story)
The latest step was over 700-units sold in May, which represents partial recovery from April. 743 is also approximately 5% more than in 2013.
After the first five months of the year Nissan delivered 5,596 LEAFs in Japan, which is over 20% more than 4,641 in 2013.
Not bad at all, but we are always hoping for more and waiting on the e-NV200 results, which will enter the market before the end of the year.
