Nissan electric car sales (LEAF and e-NV200) increased in the past fiscal year (ended March 31, 2018) by 10%.

While FY2017 didn’t bring big numbers, for Nissan it was a transition year from the first-generation LEAF to the second-generation LEAF (from October 2017 in Japan and early 2018 in Europe/U.S.).

At the same time, e-NV200 awaited its upgrade from a 24 kWh battery to a 40 kWh battery, so there is big potentialfor growth this and next year.

Since 2010, Nissan has sold more than 320,000 LEAFs.

“Demand is expected to keep rising as customers embrace the new, second-generation Nissan LEAF, which offers increased range and new, advanced technologies. Sales of the redesigned model, introduced in October 2017, are gaining traction in Japan and the U.S. The all-new LEAF is set to go on sale in more new markets this fiscal year, including Latin America and the Asia & Oceania region.”

Nissan Executive Vice President Daniele Schillaci, who heads the company’s electric-vehicle business said:

“The strong performance of Nissan’s EV models globally is a testimony to our expertise and leadership in electric vehicle technology. The unprecedented response to the most advanced electric car in the world, the Nissan LEAF, contributed significantly to the robust growth of Nissan in 2017. The Nissan LEAF is the best-selling electric car in the world, with the widest reach and the greatest availability. We expect its continuous leadership in 2018.”

Nissan’s PR department loves to lie. Like the Leaf being the first EV with one pedal driving.

Demand in U.S. has fallen off the table, as continuing bad press on the Leaf grows.
A chapter in e.v. history that preserves a fragile Leaf, (battery design) pressed between its pages.
Wait for the upgraded version next Fall.

Well, I’d have to disagree only because the sales numbers don’t reflect what you say and I suspect 99% of the buying public is not aware of the issue. And even some that are don’t really care if they are leasing the car which most people are.
