Japan January 2016 (Updated)



Second Life Edition


The Japanese EV market started the year on good note, with sales up 45% regarding January 2015, with the 3.500 units representing the best month since September '14, placing the EV Share at 0.93%, will this mean that the Japanese EV market is back on track?



The 30kWh version of the Nissan Leaf arrived in a big way and propelled Nissan's hatch to near record levels, with 2.503 units (Record was 2.593 units, made in Feb. '11), leaving behind the Outlander PHEV by a wide margin, Mitsu's SUV recorded 801 units, dropping 3% YoY.

  1. So nice to see Leaf taking Japan's sales to new heights.
    3,574 is very impressive. Small island nation like Japan can accelerate electric vehicle sales much faster.
