USA: Nissan Leaf’s November, December sales likely to climb back to 2011 levels

Nissan is apparently past the problems that plagued sales of its all-electric Leaf earlier past year and is likely to either surpass or be close to matching its 2011 sales numbers for November and December, according to a company executive at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Nissan ran into supply issues after it expanded distribution to all 50 states from seven earlier this year. That meant that California, which accounts for about 60 percent of US Leaf sales, was short on inventory, Nissan North America spokesman David Reuter told AutoblogGreen.

“We starved the California market a bit, and that impacted our sales,” said Reuter, adding that many states scaled back on EV incentives for 2012. For November and December, “we’ll be much closer to parity compared to calendar year 2011,” Reuter said.
