Nissan announced its sales result in Europe for the month of May.

LEAF was the #5 best selling model for the brand with 2,814 sales.

Compared to 50,818 sales total Nissan sales, LEAF was responsible for 5.5%, which is not a small portion, but we had hoped for more after the news of a new order every 10 minutes.

With more than 37,000 orders out there for the second-generation LEAF and maybe only over 15,000 delivered, we expected Nissan to be selling several thousand a month. In March, the company sold over 6,500.

It's hard to say why the result is below 3,000, but the number of orders would seem to clearly indicate production constraints.
