U.S. - 1450 I think by beginning of April, all of the people who were waiting for a Leaf but were waiting for supply to show up received theirs. I think sales would be a little down, but the national advertising should bump it back up close to last month.

Ha, ha! Orient Express gives an overly-precise guess at a late time on May 1:

Did they really sell that few last month?

I posted the link to Nissan’s press release in the post prior to yours.

Very bad month for all vehicle sales, and especially for Nissan's cars:

Instead of spring bounce, a thud for U.S. April auto sales

...Nissan Motor Co Ltd’s (7201.T) sales hit quite a bump, plunging 28 percent in April. The Japanese automaker’s passenger car sales dropped nearly 35 percent and SUV and truck sales were down 23.1 percent. Even sales of the company’s popular SUV crossover model Rogue were down almost 15 percent.

“April was an extremely challenging month with intense competition in the U.S. market,” Nissan said in a statement. The company said declining retail sales and a “pullback on fleet volume contributed to lower performance.”

Automotive research firm Kelley Blue Book (KBB) said the estimated average transaction price for vehicles was $35,411 in April 2018, up 2 percent versus April 2017.

Despite rising fuel prices, KBB said prices rose more for SUV models than cars...

I bet a lot of Nissan execs are kicking themselves for not gluing some plastic panels to the '18 LEAF body, jacking up the suspension, and calling it a BECUV...
