Sales of the new Leaf EV are off to an excellent start, according to Nissan. At the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, Nissan Senior Vice President Asako Hoshino told reporters that sales have exceeded expectations, and that it has received over 9,000 orders in less than two months of availability.
Europe has made up 3,500 of those global sales, according to a report from Automotive News Europe. According to Nissan Europe EV Director Gareth Dunsmore, it took the first-generation Nissan Leaf a year to achieve that same number. The new Nissan Leaf began sales in Norway in early September, followed by Germany, Austria, France and Holland at the beginning of October. EV-friendly Norway has seen more than 2,000 sales of the 2018 Leaf so far.
