Nissan’s Leaf saw an uptick in sales for March with 1,246 units representing a 34 percent year over year increase. The all-electric car sold just 930 units in February, and a mere 755 in the slow month of January, so things are better, but not ideal. Compared to the car’s best year, 2014, when it […]

This month the five-year anniversary of the Nissan Leaf and Chevy Volt mark the first half decade for mass-market plug-in electrified vehicles (PEVs). PEVs had existed prior, including the Mitsubishi i-MiEV circa 2009, the limited-production Tesla Roadster from 2008, and others, but the Volt and Leaf began for major manufacturers what is now a growing […]

  Compared to the 2016 Chevy Volt, a Nissan Leaf could leave you stranded, and it’s at least far from range-anxiety free. Similarly, the 2016 Toyota Prius uses 1990s tech in its NiMh battery.

Nissan reported a respectable 1,393 Leafs sold for the month of August. This tally is an uptick over July’s 1,174, down from June’s 2,074, and the automaker did not provide in a press release year-over-year statistics as it has in times past, or anything more than a brief statement of bare fact.
