Nissan’s all electric car, the LEAF, has broken more or it’s own sales records in the last month, with an impressive 630 sales. This is 155% more sales than a year earlier, in March 2013 with 247 sold, and smashing the previous record sales month of September 2013 when 332 LEAFs were sold.
The figures were released today from independent Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT). This last month has made the first quarter of 2014 the best record for sales yet for the LEAF and hopes are high that the trend will continue.
Of particular note, the LEAF sales figures from the SMMT show that Nissan have outsold all competing pure electric models combined by more than two to one.
James Wright, Managing Director, Nissan Motor GB, said:
“The continued success of the Nissan LEAF comes as no surprise to those of us who have been involved with its development since the start. Designed from the wheels up as a 100% electric model, it blazed the trail for EV technology when it was launched and today it still leads the way. As the LEAF becomes an increasingly familiar sight on the nation’s roads, word of mouth is spreading, and more and more drivers are being won over by its undeniable economic and environmental credentials.”
