Nissan’s Leaf electric vehicle is one of the more popular alternative energy cars out there, and this year the demand for it has increased.
In US, the upward trend has gotten to the point where Nissan doesn’t think they will be able to keep dealerships stocked throughout the summer.
This is a nice surprise for the car maker, as last year, people were barely buying the Leaf, so this sudden interest must have caught Nissan off guard. What made the US buyer have this sudden change of heart? Was it the improvement of electric technology? Considering that the Nissan Leaf used to have issues running in high temperatures, it seems plausible.
Other reasons could also be the overall increased awareness concerning the environment, or even the new prices. Fact is that right now, Nissan is selling 2.000 units each month and they are slowly stepping up their game to keep up with increased demand. But with so many new EVs announced to come on the market, maybe the Leaf’s days are numbered.
