Nissan Leaf Sales Expected to Double in 2014: CEO

After experiencing a surge in sales last year, Nissan hopes to see its Leaf sales double within the near future.

Nissan saw its Leaf sales grow 130 percent in 2013 with a record 22,610 units sold. The Japanese automaker also closed off the year with its strongest month of Leaf sales yet with 2,529 units sold in December.

“We are now on a trend of 3,000 cars a month in the U.S., which is about 36,000 cars” said Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn. “The next step is moving up to 4,000 a month, which is going to be approximately 50,000.”
