Report: Nissan expects LEAF sales to double with new Smyrna plant

Nissan LEAF

Nissan new plant in Smyrna, Tennessee will be reedy to produce the Nissan LEAF in December, helping the brand overcome sluggish sales of the all-electric compact car and doubling U.S. sales to 20,000 units during the current fiscal year.

Nissan’s Bill Krueger, vice chairman of its U.S. unit, said that the company is in the process of expanding sales nationally after launching it in seven states.

Sales of the LEAF have dropped in the past two months with May numbers falling 55 percent to 510 units.

“We’ve had to fulfill demand from one plant globally,” Krueger said. “Once we localize it in December, the second half of the fiscal year is when we’ll see most of the supply, demand be available.”
