5,000th Nissan Leaf Sold, California Has Most Of Them

2011 Nissan Leaf

About eight months ago Nissan started selling its highly anticipated all-electric Leaf model and just a few days ago they’ve reached an important milestone, selling the 5,000th unit to a customer in the United States. According to the company’s spokesperson Katherine Zachary, most of the sales have been to clients who live in the United States.

The Japanese automaker stated that approximately 85% of the cars sold come with the DC rapid-charging port, despite the fact that there aren’t that many publicly available DC rapid charging stations. While for the 2011MY this is an optional, for next year’s 2012MY it will come as standard to the Leaf SL.

Approximately 18,000 clients paid $99 to get on the pre-reservation list in the areas where the car won’t be available sooner than next year.
