Nissan LEAF in Japan
This year in Japan, Nissan LEAF sales have improved every month compared to last year. So we assume that the 2016/30 kWh version has done the job in keeping up the momentum for Nissan's EV until the larger improvements show up in 2017.
In August, LEAF sales growth in Japan amounted to 36%, up to 791 cars sold, not far from the best August ever.
After the first eight months of 2016, the 11,120 sales (up 64% year-over-year) registered is now higher than the total set in 2015 (as well as 2011 and 2012).
And there's still a chance to to set a new all-time yearly record (the previous record stands at 14,177 in 2014).
