This past weekend Nissan announced that after just more than 3 years on the market, the LEAF had reached the 100,000 vehicles sold level.
More impressive still is that InsideEVs calculated Nissan had only sold about 88,000 through the end of November, and the company themselves shortly thereafter announced reaching the 92,000 LEAF sold mark in early December - meaning the company has sold about 12,000 copies in the past two months worldwide.
Overall, Nissan has captured 48% of pure electric sales worldwide since 2010 according to the company.
Naturally as this is a major milestone (the first all electric car to reach the six figure sales level), so Nissan has a cute way of celebrating – by doing a featurette on the 99,999th customer (that press release below)
So why talk about #99,999 and not the magic 100,000?
As mentioned above this is a pretty big milestone for Nissan; look for the company to celebrate again with owner 100k internationally shortly…which we will cover as well.
