No signs of slowing down in Europe

We know that the new Leaf continues to make huge progress across Europe. Some new sales figures have come out, which reports that a new Leaf is sold every 10 minutes. Even though volume deliveries only began in February, Nissan's electric has still managed to accrue some 43,000 sales so far. U.S sales are only a fraction of this, standing at just over 10k in the past 9 months.

I think the U.S has become really enamoured with the Model 3, despite the issues that Tesla has been having with deliveries and build quality. I feel like we are a lot more concerned with range anxiety over here, so until the Leaf can deliver around 250miles of range, it may struggle to gain real traction in NA.

Theres a good chance that we will see a spike in sales in the U.S once the long range E Plus model becomes available. Anyone who has done solid research on the Leaf knows that it would benefit from having a proper thermal management system as well.

Curious how much its going to cost Nissan to implement this system, and what that'll do to the starting price. What are the chances that they will offer it as a retrofix for current owners? Would address successive rapid charging issues.

Tesla has fan boys similar to what brands like Apple do, they aren't doing anything entirely different or unique, in some cases not matching up to rivals.
In America this is especially true with millennial buyers that don't know much about the brand.
