Nissan's electric flagship noted over 3,700 sales in Japan and it turns out that even more were soldĀ in Europe (3,766) in February.

The LEAF is now one of the top five best selling Nissans in Europe, with brand share of 6.5% in February.

Together with nearly 900 sold in the U.S., Nissan delivered nearly 8,400 LEAFs in its three biggest markets. On an annualized basis. that would work out ~ 100,000 sales.

How high will LEAF sales really go though? What's the limit before a major backlog occurs? We think globally around 10,000 a month or maybe a bit sounds reasonable
