When the Nissan LEAF first went on sale in the American market, the plug-in hybrid car raised a few eyebrows. Now, the LEAF is considered the best-selling electric car in the world—and it isn’t finished quite yet. Nissan recently announced that the LEAF has officially set a new US electric car sales record in 2014.
After posting a total of 3,102 units sold in December, the LEAF sold a total 30,200 units in 2014. This record-breaking sales year means that the LEAF has sold a total of 72,322 units in the United States alone. The LEAF is one of three plug-in cars that make a lasting impression on American consumers, selling more than 1,000 units a month.
Nissan builds each of its LEAF hatchbacks at its assembly plant in Smyrna, Tennessee. Make sure you stop in to Lewis Nissan today for more information on the record-breaking, eco-friendly car. You can even give it a test drive!
