Sales of the Nissan LEAF in Japan have passed the 30,000 unit milestone. The cumulative total in Nissan’s home market was reached at the end of September 2013, the same month that global sales of the Nissan LEAF topped 4,700 units—the LEAF’s best-ever global monthly sales result to date. By the end of September, cumulative global sales of the Nissan LEAF since launch totaled 83,000 units.
The Nissan LEAF is the world’s first mass-produced, 100% electric vehicle. It is also the best-selling EV, giving Nissan a leadership position in Zero Emissions mobility. Sales of the LEAF began in Japan and North America in December 2010. Now marketed in Europe and other countries, LEAF sales have steadily increased every year. In fiscal year 2012, Nissan sold 11,600 units in Japan, and even stronger year-on-year sales are expected for the end of this fiscal year.
