Jan 2019 LEAF Sales in the US: 717

Tue Feb 05, 2019 7:51 am

From the folks at insideevs.com
The number may be an estimate, but they have an excellent track record.

I am not even sure that Nissan is hitting their CARB compliance requirements. Pretty sad for a model under one year old

There are a lot of other (often better) EV options out there already or literally just round the corner... Plus, Nissan does not have an exactly stellar record, either in general or with the Leaf specifically... It may be catching up with them...

I'll be buying another EV this year and Nissan is not even on my radar...

I cannot see how you so blatantly are trashing this car... The Leaf has been one of the best wide spread EVs out there for years. Yes, they can improve on them , but don't just publicly trash it..

Tired of waiting for Nissan to get it right. Poor TMS, dealers act like they are doing you a favor to ORDER you a Leaf Plus, not serious enough to have one on the lot or even have a clue when one may arrive. I finally realized I can't make a square peg fit into a round hole, scrapping the notion of putting a Nissan anything in the garage. Went TESLA instead. Best decision on car possible. The Leaf just had too many compromises to accept. Lies, poor support, no more. I feel at home in my Model 3 LR. Love the adaptors to fit ANY power source, the summon feature is great on rainy days at work and when grocery shopping, major "wow factor". Had my color, trim and battery in the garage within 3 weeks. See ya!

Nissan may have finally shot the other foot: having relied largely on word of mouth, and on forums like this to support sales - and doing very little advertising themselves - the large number of people who are unhappy with the Leaf I may have soured that word of 'Net enough to suppress sales. They may actually have to pry a few pennies out of their purse for advertising...

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Speak of advertising, here in Florida, I see a Leaf advertisement @ lest 3 or 4 times a day every day. Started about 3 weeks ago.

I would wait to see how March/April pans out. Too many people waiting on the longer range.

62 kwh deliveries started in March so even March sales would provide only a partial picture.

It is actually not quite that open and shut for the potential new buyer.
