Results are not bad, but there is no growth
In March, sales of the Nissan LEAF in Japan amounted to roughly 2,381, which is 21% less than a year ago. That brings us to the 4th straight month of decline, though at least the pace of decrease is slowing down (from -80% in December, to -25% in January, - 50% in February and -21% in March).
We are not sure whether the new 62 kWh Nissan LEAF e+ is already being delivered in volume (it should've been available since January), but with dropping numbers, we assume it's not.
Nissan LEAF sales in Japan – March 2019
Total sales during the first quarter were 7,081. If the sales in the U.S. do not increase, Japan has a chance to take over in cumulative sales by the end of this year (currently at 122,222 since the LEAF's introduction in 2010).
