Second-Gen 2018 Nissan Leaf Would Spoil Its Own Party

By  | 

When there is a sales momentum going on, it will make the carmaker think twice about making any big changes on the affected vehicle as doing so may disrupt the tempo.

But unfortunately, Nissan is not going to abide to the statement above as they are already making progress with the development of the next-gen Leaf. The future Leaf promises to offer more than 200 miles of driving range and a nicer design all-while being affordable to own.

It is a pretty exciting car to look out for if you are planning to jump into the EV scene but it may spell trouble for the current outgoing Leaf. The existing Leaf is now viewed as an aged-old car but amazingly, the vehicle is still able to make new records in sales.

Believe it or not, the Leaf posted their bestselling year last year, which is kind of surprising if you are consider that the Leaf is far behind what the market is now offering. A total of 14,795 Leaf were sold in Japan last year and it automatically becomes the car’s bestselling year.

If any other carmaker is to found that their car had just achieved this despite of its age, we can expect the brand to hold a new model from making its debut as doing so will allow them to milk as much profits as possible from the older model. It appears that this is not the case for the Nissan Leaf.
