Come early July, General Motors might just have to bury its Chevrolet Volt sales totals once again. That's because Nissan's head honcho (chief executive officer) Carlos Ghosn says that U.S. sales of the Leaf will hit a record-shattering 1,500 units in June. More precisely, Ghosn, speaking of the Leaf, told Automotive News (sub. req.) that:
We're going to have 1,500 cars delivered in the month of June, which is going to be the largest amount we've delivered in the United States. This should help, a little bit, restart the enthusiasm.
At 1,500 units, June Leaf deliveries would smash the 1,142 electric Nissan hatchbacks sold in May and might just make the 481 Chevy Volts sold that month seem feeble. By the end of June, we expect the Leaf to become America's best-selling plug-in vehicle and would be shocked if our prediction turns out to be inaccurate. The crucial question is just how long will the Leaf retain that title?
