Nissan LEAF had another great month in September as sales in the U.S. surged by about 48% to 2,881.
This is not the record, because in August 3,186 were delivered, but perhaps September is even more important for a different reason.
Never before have EV sales for Nissan been close to a 5% share. The previous high was 4.4% in December 2013.
In September, the LEAF reached 5.1% share of all Nissan passenger cars sold. Or, to put it another way, one per every 20 passenger cars sold by Nissan in the U.S. were all-electric, while a year ago that ratio was one per 25.
