New Leaf sets sales monthly sales record in Canada

It looks like the Leaf isn't just seeing success in Europe, as it set a new sales record of 906 units in Canada last month. Year over year the Leaf has seen a +500% increase, and in just five months it has exceeded full year sales from 2016. In May the Leaf accounted for 15% of total Nissan car sales. It's looking like 2018 may very well be one of the biggest years we've seen for EV's.

EVs in general are taking the automotive world by storm even though they still account for a small percentage of overall vehicle sales. I'm sure the Leaf will continue to see sales increase everywhere alongside other electrics, but they may not see a 500% increase year after year.

Good to see they established themselves somewhere in North America because they are struggling in the states.
On the plus side this could mean sooner updates to stimulate sales further.

It is a little odd that they are seeing greater success in Canada than the U.S, considering how much further along we are with charging infrastructure. Its obvious that the redesign made a significant difference in consumer interest.
