Nissan Celebrates All-Electric LEAF Sales Milestone On National Plug In Day in the USA
With cumulative U.S. sales passing 35,000, Nissan LEAF brought owners throughout the United States together to share their experiences during National Plug In Day on Sept. 28 and 29.
Nissan — a global leader in electric vehicle sales — is the first automaker to serve as a presenting sponsor of National Plug In Day.
Nissan LEAF sales in the United States are up 317 percent year-over-year since launching the 2013 model in March. Similarly, National Plug In Day has expanded to more than 80 events in cities across the United States and in several other countries. Thousands of EV advocates took part in a variety of activities like EV parades, tailgates, ride-and-drives, live music and games.
National Plug In Day, organized by Plug In America, Sierra Club and the Electric Auto Association, is a nationwide celebration created to heighten awareness of and highlight the benefits of plug-in vehicles, such as Nissan LEAF.
Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., Japan’s second-largest automotive company, is headquartered in Yokohama, Japan, and is part of the Renault-Nissan Alliance. In 2010, Nissan introduced the all-electric Nissan LEAF, and continues to lead in zero-emission mobility. The LEAF, the first mass-market, pure-electric vehicle launched globally, is now one of the best-selling EV’s.
