The 2016 Nissan LEAF with its 30 kWh really bounced back in Japan on the sales graph in a HUGE way, as nearly a record number of 2,503 were sold in January.

Only the car's first full month on the market, back in February 2011 (2,593) was stronger.


In January Nissan LEAF was 28th best selling car in Japan


The positive news comes after weak a 2015 with so many months of decreasing sales. January alone bring more LEAF sales than the previous four months combined (2,289) and 151% more than in January 2015.

At the same time, Nissan celebrates the 60,000 sales milestone (60,202) for LEAFs in Japan.

Whether demand will be strong enough to keep the momentum going and/or translate to Europe and the US, we don't know yet...but hopefully yes.
