The third annual National Drive Electric Week has only just ended and for Nissan, it was on a high note. This week was not only host to over 130 of the brand’s funded gassroots events across the country, but it also marked their announcement of reaching 60,000 electric car sales in the United States. This makes Nissan one of the top runners in EV sales in the US and, with its partnership in Europe with Renault, one of the top sellers of EVs in the world. EV News Report states that Nissan’s electric car sales are up 34% this year and marks August as a record-making month: 3,186 cars sold. That’s 3,186 cleaner cars on the highway thanks to Nissan and LEAF drivers alike. “LEAF owners have become our most effective marketers. Their enthusiasm for their LEAF and its benefits drives family, friends and co-workers to consider and purchase one for themselves,” said Nissan’s director of EV marketing, Toby Perry.
With the help of loyal LEAF owners, Nissan will be sure to see continued sales jumps as the months continue, making the road cleaner with every sale. At Nissan of Charles Lake, you know your dollar is going toward a better world and a better car.
