Nissan Leaf EV hits 25,000 U.S. sales milestone

When it comes to electric vehicles, it’s all a numbers game. How much range does it have, how many hours does it take to charge, and “it costs how much again?!”

Nevertheless, while those numbers are important, Nissan is proudly screaming from the rafters some numbers of its own. The Japanese automaker recently announced the Leaf EV has surpassed the 25,000 sales mark in the U.S.

Unsurprisingly, the Leaf has experienced the bulk of its success on the West Coast, however, Nissan reports that demand in other key markets, including Dallas, Atlanta, and Chicago is growing, too.

And Nissan appears ready to meet that growing demand. The automaker recently shifted Leaf production stateside to its Smyrna, Tennessee plant, a move that allowed Nissan to trim Leaf prices by $6,400, bringing the EV to a much more reasonable $28,000 before local and federal incentives.

With global sales sitting around the 62,000 mark, the Leaf’s recent U.S. milestone is indeed something to celebrate, especially for a dedicated EV that debuted at the tail end of 2010.
