Nissan’s 1,347 December Leaf sales were a bump upwards from 1,054 units in November, but a far cry from 3,102 in December 2014.

Nissan’s 2,074 Leaf sales in June were nearly flat next to May’s 2,104 as the carmaker continues to keep the car relevant in the eyes of buyers.

“The starting price of a Nissan Leaf is about $16,348** in Colorado,” said Nissan today as it’s now kicking in free charging for two years with its “No Charge to Charge” program for Leafs bought in Denver.
