In Japan first deliveries of the new 2018 Nissan Leaf begun in October last year. In the debut month 3.629 units of both the new and outgoing models were sold in total, but in the following two months sales declined due to an inspection scandal.
Anyway, now inspection problems seem to be in the past and last month Nissan was able to sell 3.768 units of the Leaf in Japan – making a total of 11.615 units sold since the new model’s debut month. Furthermore, the Nissan Leaf was the 19th best selling passenger car in that country last month.
Now that first deliveries are also happening in Europe and the USA, it’ll be interesting to see which market will surpass the Japanese sale figures first.
Considering that in the USA Tesla is already delivering the Model 3, I think that the 2018 Nissan Leaf has better chances to succeed in Europe. What do you think?
Thanks again for the head ups Michał.
