What better way to follow much lauded unveilings at the 2014 North American International Auto Show than to announce an incredible milestone in sales?

Nissan announced that, after just more than four years on the market, the LEAF reached 100,000 vehicles sold following additional sales this past weekend. According to Nissan, it has captured 48% of pure electric sales across the globe since 2010; of that percentage, the United States’ consumers account for nearly half of those sales. In 2013, the Japanese automaker sold 22,610 LEAFs in the U.S., which doubled the number sold the previous year.

“With LEAF, we see a high level of organic growth and viral sales where LEAF owners become our best evangelists and salespeople. With electric vehicles, many folks presume a 100 percent electric vehicle won’t meet their needs until they chat with a neighbor, co-worker or family friend who loves their LEAF and explains its practicality, and then it goes on their consideration list,” said Erik Gottfried, Nissan’s director of EV Sales and Marketing.

The Nissan LEAF provides quiet operation and energy efficiency without compromising on power and acceleration – while boasting a low cost for maintenance. In addition to this, Nissan offers an extended warranty for the battery-power holding capacity.
