Nissan LEAF Electric Vehicle Sales Sets Record for Second Straight Year

The Nissan Leaf is all about taking life to the next level. Sure, it’s an EV with low emissions and high fuel economy numbers, allowing owners to take their conservation efforts up a notch. But, it’s also much more than just an EV; it’s as reliable and valuable of a model as any of Nissan’s other small car offerings. It all adds up to an unprecedented and unmatched combination of revolutionary technology, practicality, and style.

New car owners have been taking notice, right from the very first moment the Nissan Leaf hit the market. It’s already sold over 142,000 units worldwide, with over 64,000 units sold just in the United States. Last year, the Leaf set a record for most electric vehicle sales in a year. This year, it set that record all over again.

“With nearly 20 electric cars or plug-in hybrid models on the road today, Nissan LEAF remains at the head of the class, outselling the nearest competitor by 50 percent through September,” said Brendan Jones, director of Nissan electric vehicle Sales and Infrastructure. “Since the initial launch in 2010 our primary goal is to bring electric vehicles to the mass market in a practical and fun-to-drive package, and we continue to deliver electric cars to more new buyers than anyone else.”

We’ve still got two months to make many more Nissan Leaf converts, so come see us here at Blackburn Nissan to check out the Leaf and help us push that Nissan Leaf electric vehicle sales record even higher.
