New Nissan Leaf poised to set all-time sales record in Norway in March 2018
The new Nissan Leaf electric vehicle (EV) is apparently on its way to set an all-time sales record in Norway this month!
According to the preliminary figures available for the sales of new Nissan Leaf in Norway in March 2018, an astounding number of 1,191 units of the electric vehicle had already been registered in Norway till March 19.
Going at the pace at which new Nissan Leaf EVs are being registered in Norway, it is being widely projected that the final figures for the new Leaf units registered in the country for the month of March will probably touch a whopping 1,500.
The projected total of 1,500 registrations of the new Nissan Leaf in Norway in March 2018 will be significantly higher than the previous new Leaf sales record which the automaker had set in February 2018, when 781 units of new Leaf EVs were registered in Norway.
The all-time sales record -- of an expected 1,500 registrations -- which the new Nissan Leaf is poised to set in March 2018 will beat both Tesla Model S and Tesla Model X sales records thus far. Tesla had sold a record high of 1,493 units of Model S in March 2014, and 1,429 units of Model X in December 2017.
