Nissan Leaf Accounted For 45% Of All Zero-Emissions Cars Sold In 2013

Nissan Leaf

The increasingly popular Nissan Leaf accounted for 45% of all zero emissions vehicles sold last year, with demand rising 77%, GreenBiz has reported.

The 2013 sales figures come from the Renault-Nissan alliance, and show that 48,000 Nissan Leafs were sold throughout the year. The all-electric car has been on the market for 3 years now, and last month reached the 100,000 total sales mark.

As I reported just yesterday, global production of electric cars is expected to rise 67% this year, including quite a few new models, so Nissan will have some more competition. However, many of the new models will be selling at a higher price point than the Leaf. The price of the Nissan Leaf actually dropped substantially in some markets last year. No doubt that has contributed to its growing popularity.
