Nissan LEAF in Japan fell in month-over-month sales from 1,408 in July to 912 in August. However, comparing that 912 figure to the August 2013 result of 938 shows that sales have remained consistent.
August typically is the slow summer month for LEAF sales in Japan and, in 2011 and 2012, the results were 529 and 451, so 912 isn't bad at all, especially after new higher taxes were applied in April.
This year, Nissan LEAF sales already exceed 9,000 (9,121 to be exact) in Japan. That's ~ 19% more than last year after the first eight months (7,658).
Total sales since December 2010 are closing in on 44,000.
