Nissan LEAF Sales Up 20% This Year In Japan; On Track For Over 50,000 Worldwide
Good news is coming from Japan, where Nissan LEAF sales grew by 20% this year to 6,801 through the first six months. This is roughly 1,200 more than in the first half of 2013.
In June – 1,205 LEAFs were delivered – which is almost as many as April and May combined.
Hopefully, future results of over 1,100 units (which is the 18-month average) will continue and maybe even some new records will be set in the second half of the year just like in 2013.
Its worth noting that Europe, with 7,109 LEAFs sold in the first six months, is now slightly ahead of Japan; however the lonely leader is the U.S. with 12,736.
In total, sales of LEAF in US, Europe and Japan amounted to 26,646 YTD, which is a new high, and the Japanese company seems to be well on track to exceed the level of 50,000 a year in 2014 for the very first time.
