The Nissan LEAF noted a decent 916 sales in Japan last month, which really isn't bad considering lack of new generation version.

Moreover, the total of 13,563 new sales so far this year is just 614 less than in the EV's record year of 2014 (when 14,177 sold) with still one month to go.

In other words, thanks to the introduction of the upgraded 30 kWh version of the LEAF (and Japan being relatively small when it comes to average distance driving needs), Nissan's EV will probably manage to set new sales record for the country this year.

Overall, 71,262 LEAFs have been sold in Japan since December 2010.
