Nissan Chief Anticipates LEAF Production Soon Hitting 3,000 Units a Month
Nissan Motor Co. (7201), which reported record U.S. sales of Leaf hatchbacks in 2013, is optimistic that the world’s most prolific electric-car maker can soon double deliveries, Chief Executive Officer Carlos Ghosn said.
Sales of the battery-powered Leaf jumped 130 percent last year to 22,610 vehicles, aided by 2,529 deliveries in December, the most ever in a single month for the Yokohama, Japan-based company. That figure should keep rising, Ghosn said in a CNBC interview yesterday.
“We are now on a trend of 3,000 cars a month in the U.S., which is about 36,000 cars” a year, Ghosn said. “The next step is moving up to 4,000 a month,” he said, without setting a target date.
