LEAF sales in the U.S. were up by 1%, but in Japan down by 29%.

Nissan LEAF sales keep falling in Japan, but in the U.S. Nissan at least technically managed to stop the decline in November.

In November some 2,627 LEAFs were sold in those two markets, which probably makes the European market (no data for the past month yet) bigger than the rest of the world combined (over 3,000 in October).

Since the European sales of the LEAF are also decreasing (37% in October), the Japanese flagship is in a tough position. It's hard to imagine what "engine" of growth Nissan would need to launch to revive the LEAF model before the next-generation models appear. Volkswagen, for example, tried to increase the volume of e-Golf by making it more affordable.
