Nissan LEAF & Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Sales In Japan Up In March
The two best selling plug-in models in Japan – the Nissan LEAF and Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, noted slight increases in sales in March by 2% and 8% respectively.
Nissan LEAF, with 1,231 units sold, outsold the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, which this time had 796 sales.
YTD numbers although in both cases are lower than in 2014 – in case of Outlander PHEV, sales are down 40%.
Well, the positive is that EVs in Japan shouldn’t hit any bumps in April like in 2014 after Japan increased the consumption tax.
