The USB on our new Leaf is much more powerful then the Gen 1 Leaf USB. Yes, 2 USB's would have been nice, but for 99% of the time, its not an issue.

Outside of the US, it looked like Canada Leaf sales were down (in spite of some long waiting times), Norway is up, Europe is steady. Too soon for the new LATAM, Australia, and South East Asia markets to get much data. Anyone see data from the UK?

Overall car sales were weak last month. Also overall EV sales seem to have flattened. I wonder if we have hit a wall in terms of market penetration as Early adopters have moved over now.
Ontario (which has a large percentage of the Canadian urban population) had a change of provincial government last year which immediately cut the rebate program for new cars (Hybrid - $7000, Full EV - $14,000). That put a damper on the national sales numbers.

Crushing? Based upon this and the earlier report from July, the Kona EV is selling slightly better than the LEAF there and may end the year with more total sales; it certainly sold more in the last month in the article that you linked to.

And the elephant-in-the-room isn't for sale in Ireland yet, and it smashed records in the nearby UK when it became available.

Sorry, if you couldn’t see the sarcasm in my words. It’s 1000 cars. Great it’s selling well, but pretty small fry on the global scale.

The USA just isn't pro EV like Europe and Asia. In a town of 20K I have seen 2 Leafs and 2 Teslas.

98% do not even know Nissan sells an EV.

The top three selling vehicles in the US are trucks.
A big chunk of the population in the US wants trucks and big SUVs, followed by crossovers.

Until there are EV trucks that can realistically replace ICE trucks at cost and range, ICE will still rule here.

Leaf smoked the Tesla 3 and Kona this month in Germany.
