The Renault-Nissan Alliance marked a milestone today by selling its 100,000th zero tailpipe emissions vehicle.
It’s no surprise to anyone that has been paying attention to the Leaf’s sales figures, but Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn has confirmed that his company will not meet the sales target for its all-electric vehicle.
Nissan has a reason to celebrate now that their electric vehicle, the Leaf, has achieved its milestone of 10,000 vehicles sold in the US. The Leaf, which first hit the American market in December 2010, still isn’t available in all 50 states – though Nissan looks to rectify that by March of this year.
Surely the impressive sales figure proves that American consumers are open to the idea of electric vehicles. In fact, we would go so far as to say that the worldwide market is embracing EVs as Nissan has sold 20,000 Leafs globally. The Leaf’s impressive sales figures trump all other OEMs combined sales of electric vehicles throughout the world – though that’s not saying much, considering there isn’t much competition out there as of yet.
