Nissan's run of sales luck continues in July for Japan, extending the period of growth to seven months.

It appears that the Japanese consumer has decided the the 107 miles (172 km) of range found in the new premium trim levels for the 2016 model year is more than adequate for their needs...something we certainly have not seen in the US, as Nissan's EV is currently mired in a 13 month sales depression.

In July, sales in Japan increased 32.9% to 922 cars, which isn't a new record for the month such as in June, but still relatively good.

YTD numbers for the LEAF now stands at 10,329 - up 67% year-over-year.

In total, Nissan has sold about 68,000 LEAFs in Japan, out of over 230,000 worldwide.
