Quote from Erik Gottfried, Director, Nissan Electric Vehicle Sales and Marketing

“LEAF sales in October set a monthly record for the eighth month in a row with improved availability of the popular S trim driving further sales in new wave markets such as Houston and Boston. Atlanta held on to the title of No. 1 LEAF market for the third month in a row, narrowly edging out San Francisco. As LEAF sales continue to diversify geographically, we saw particularly strong sales in the Central Region led by Denver and Salt Lake City.”
