Nissan LEAF in Japan

Nissan LEAF in Japan

Nissan LEAF sales in Japan reached a still impressive 1,614 units in March, after surging to over 2,500 and 2,800 in previous months as a result of the larger battery capacity (30 kWh) version's introduction in its home market.

Year-over-year in March stood at 31%, helping to push the overall first quarter tally to a record 6,936 LEAF sold.

And that was not a small beat, Q1 results were some 2,500 better than achieved in any previous quarter to date!

In fact, Nissan now needs just over 2,000 more sales to pass all of 2015's sales in Japan combined (9,057), and just 7,000 more sales over the next 9 months to set an new all-time record (14,177 in 2014).

On the all-time charts, Nissan Japan has nearly crossed the 65,000 mark through March.
