Nissan LEAF in Japan

Nissan LEAF in Japan

Nissan LEAF astonishes again in Japan! After strong January with 2,503 sales and 28th place on the top sellers list, February brings new all-time record!

2,819 LEAFs were sold in Japan last month, which again allowed to break into 28th place!

Looking at the last two month's result onthe sales graphs shows how well the new 30 kWh version of the LEAF has been received in its home market.

We noted that 5,322 LEAFs have now been sold in the first two months of 2016, which is more than the 5,212 sold in the previous nine months (April to December 2015) - no further comment needed.

The question now of course is how long Nissan can maintain this pace?  Are the 2016 results so far a backlog of new model anticipation for the upgraded LEAF  (aprx. 7 month lead time), or a new baseline for ongoing sales.

Hat Tip to Pete!!!
