Regular is how LEAF gross sales have rolled a lot of the yr, however now we see a downturn.
October 2018 is shaping as much as be the strongest gross sales months in U.S. historical past, however the identical is sadly not true for the Nissan LEAF.
With simply 1,234 LEAF bought in October, gross sales are down fairly a bit in comparison with September. On the flip aspect, final October noticed LEAF gross sales at simply 213 items, so year-over-year gross sales are up a formidable 479.three p.c.
Wanting again, there have been 1,563 LEAFs bought in September, up from the 1,315 LEAFs bought in August, and an enchancment over the gross sales we famous of 1,149 LEAFs bought in July.
Within the month-over-month space, gross sales are clearly down in comparison with September. Taking a look at YTD figures for the LEAF we word that cumulative gross sales for the primary 10 months of 2018 now stand at 11,920, which is a good enchancment over the primary 10 months of 2017 when LEAF gross sales totaled 10,953.
It now appears the very best determine Nissan can hope for in all of 2018 is someplace close to 15,000 LEAFs bought. That’s a dissappoint in the event you take into account that in the very best of instances (2014 ) LEAF gross sales hit upwards of 30,000 items in a single yr.
