Nissan LEAF Sales Blossom by +285 Percent
It was an exceedingly close call, but with sales rising 1 percent—representing an additional 1,409 deliveries—Nissan North America posted its highest monthly U.S. sales total ever in March: The Nissan division tallied 126,623 sales (up .4 percent), with Infiniti providing 11,103 deliveries (a 9 percent advance), for a grand total of 137,726 vehicles leaving dealerships in March.
Particularly notable: The 2013 Nissan LEAF also scored its highest monthly sales volume ever, delivering 2,236 units that marked a 286.2 percent increase as compared to March 2012. Of course, it no doubt helps that the LEAF is now built in America and offers an affordable new entry model that can be had nationwide for a net cost of $21,000—and as low as $18,800 in California, as detailed here: http://www.autobytel.com/nissan/leaf/news/nissan-net-price-of-2013-nissan-leaf-slashed-to-18-800-115033/.
Also, while the 2013 Nissan Altima endured an 8 percent decline in sales last month, it still ended up the best-selling car in the country in March—outselling the Toyota Camry by 100 units.
