Duel in the (Rising) Sun Edition
Just a little bit late, i can now report the February numbers in Japan, which is one of the the best selling months and this year continued the trend, with 4.085 units registered, 10% behind last year, but still the second best selling month ever for plug-ins, leaving the EV Share at 1,28%.
Looking at the models ranking, the Nissan Leaf is fighting a hard race with the Outlander PHEV for the Best Selling EV title in Japan, with one monthly win for each (January for the Mitsu SUV, February for the Nissan Hatch) this year, and just 216 units separating them on the YTD chart.
Looking at the manufacturers ranking, Mitsubishi (49%) benefits from the Miev family to win those extra sales and stay ahead of Nissan (42%).

The LEAF is headed for a new global sales record with more than 5000 sold in March.ReplyDelete
Yep, i'm guessing some 5.500 units for the Leaf, what's more, there's still space to beat the 28.856 global EV sales record of last December, let's just hope Japan had a bang up sales month in March to get there.ReplyDelete
