Official numbers are in for the US.

Nissan delivered exactly 1500 Leafs for March 2018. I still haven’t seen one in LA.

Can I get a dollar in for 2,000 Leaf deliveries in April while marginally eclipsing Bolt sales?

It appears the LEAF will break Norway's single-month EV records previously set by the Tesla Model S and Model X.
Well, the 2018 LEAF broke the previous records set by Tesla in Norway:

That breaks the Tesla Model S record of 1493 set exactly four years earlier by 45%.

Next contest: what month, if ever, will the new LEAF outsell the Model 3 in the US?

I don't see that happening. The reason is simple: The US LEAF is built on an single assembly line which produces between 3 and 5 other vehicles. Nissan is not likely to stop production of those other vehicles unless 1) the demand for the other vehicles is extremely low AND 2) the profit margin of the LEAF is way higher than that of the other vehicles on the line. Neither of those is likely to be true at any time in the near future.

The Tesla Model 3, OTOH, is built on a very expensive manufacturing line all by itself. The only way that Tesla can possibly pay for that line is to build as many Tesla Model 3s as possible and sell them at the highest possible profit.

Simply put, it ain't gonna happen unless something really bad happens to Tesla.

I could see it happening the first month of a quarter once Tesla is shipping 3's overseas.
No gaurentee, but that would be the best shot.

And why does Nissan set up production that way ?

To match production to demand.
