However, it can be said that a 105mile driving range for the Nissan Leaf will make it a much more tantalizing and practical solution for transportation. Most people will be able to do accomplish 99% of their daily driving with a single charge.
In the meantime, both the Chevy Volt and the Nissan Leaf have their best sales in the month of May 2015. The Volt has sold 1,618 units and the Leaf managed 2,104 units.
The upward swing came at an interesting moment and a lot of first-gen Volts are waiting for the buyers while some buyers have already ordered their second-generation Volts. In 2015, we can see that the Leaf has outsold the Volt 7742 to 4397.
Stay tuned for more updates on Nissan Leaf!

No. I have “Range FRUSTRATION”!
Bring on the 100+ mile range models, Nissan; I am already concerned that it may be too late.
Tesla may well eat your lunch and clean your clock….
But I want you to succeed, so improve the cars and move quickly in doing so.
Make like Tesla and surprise us on the UPSIDE…
I have been driving a Leaf for nearly 3 years and 42,000 miles, mainly Bay Area commuting.
I love the car, but the batter has degraded way too much – it only really gets 50-60 miles on a charge in realistic daily driving.
The future is all about RANGE, not public charging. If you have range, then you have optionality. If you have to rely on public charging, you will be disappointed – the stations are too often occupied, out of service, or overpriced (check all that apply…). If you have RANGE, you go about your business and charge off-hours at home where your own station is never occupied, out of service, or overpriced. It really is that simple. Tesla has it today in an awesome package; where are you, Nissan?
