Leaf is Nissan's first all electric vehicle and the first allotment
that will come to America is already sold out. Nissan has announced

vehicles are wealthy and have a second car. Most of the buyers of the
Leaf are in western states according to Tavares. Tavares
said, "You can see the Nissan Leaf is a huge conquest vehicle
for the brand."He also stated that Nissan is more
bullish on the future of EVs in the U.S. than JD Power and Associates
was in its recent
report about the EV market in America. That report pegged
the EV market in the U.S. at 100,000 per year by 2020. Nissan reckons

780,000 vehicles by 2020. That is huge increase over what JD Power
and Associates expects.Nissan is expecting the EV market in
the U.S. to grow at a slower rate than in outer markets like Asia and
