Canadian Leaf Sales More Than Double In February

Nissan has reported Canadian monthly sales and, at 5,635 total unit sales of all Nissan models, February performance is down 11.1 percent over the same month last year.

Although the brand as a whole is down, the Leaf electric vehicle is performing well, with a total of 37 units sold in February 2013. This is more than double the number of sales for February 2012, which stood at 18 units.

The Rogue continues to be the most popular vehicle in the line-up with sales of 1,022 units, followed by the all-new Sentra and Versa with 918 and 661 units, respectively.

Leaf February sales are a good sign of things to come for the summer, with a reviewed second generation on the horizon as well as more clement weather.
