Nissan Leaf Hits Sales Record

The Nissan Leaf would probably be the first car to pop into you head if we asked you to name an all-electric car. It was first introduced for the 2011 model year and quickly became the world’s best-selling all-electric car. In March, the Leaf made a new record, selling 2,236 units! The next closest record was in June 2011 with 1,708. And, sales in both January and February stayed steady around 650 units for each month. So, what made March so great for the Leaf? Nissan introduced the 2013 Leaf, which is less expensive, more capable, and American-made (in Tennessee). All-in-all the 2013 Leaf is an improvement over the 2012 model. The 2013 Leaf has a shorter charging time and is more affordable with a new S model. With all of these improvements, 2013 looks promising for Nissan’s initial goal of 20,000 units per year. But you don’t have to take my word for it. The latest Nissan Leaf is available for a test drive right now at Nissan of Lake Charles.
