I wouldn't be surprised if the LEAF sales numbers for January are way down from December, simply due to lack of supply (and given how much dealers were discounting stock, lack of demand, as well). My guess is less than 1,000. Nearly all the 2012s were, pretty much, gone before the end of last year, and the 2013s don't arrive until next month, at the earliest.

Most of the dealers had low stock for most of the month of January. I expect the number to be less than December. Hopefully February will be better with the new 2013 model.

No, as the cars won't be out in quantity until March.

I just was talking to Nissan, and got some data in advance of the sales, and an update on the 2013 LEAF in regards to timing and production.

Working on an article now, but probably won't get it rounded out until tomorrow at some point (we just migrated our server to something much larger and that transfer has been all I can handle today)...but sales will be off significantly this month as they focus on rolling the 2013s out.

/will update the thread when I finally get around to publishing it out

i will say 1200-1300. there is a lack of options available locally. not all colors are at most dealerships. still have a few around that have 20+ LEAFs on the lot but not too many. On local lots (looked at before trip) I saw 5 at one, 9 at one and 4 at another place.

I also saw one being delivered (this was one that had the 9) which surprised me. didnt think they were still delivering but could have been a dealer trade...

Got some extra time tonight, and got the story out:

Nissan LEAF January/February Sales To Be Lower As Inventory Approaches A "Sold Out" Scenario
http://insideevs.com/nissan-leaf-januar ... -scenario/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

...Nissan's Director of Corporate Communications, filled us in on the situation on 2012 LEAF inventory, and short-term sales expectations for the model:
"The current model ’12 Nissan LEAF is approaching a sold-out scenario as we prepare to introduce the upgraded 2013 model, which will go on sale in February. That increased sales pace of about 1,500 units per month during the 4th quarter of 2012 means that we now are almost out of MY ’12 LEAFs. We won’t be able to meet that pace again until we can fill the channel with the new supply of ‘13s from Tennessee."
There is also some other stuff about Nissan not being able to fill the distribution channels until later in March on the 2013s, and that 80% of the available inventory they ended December with (about 900 units) will be sold by months end.

Lack of supply? There are currently six for sale sitting on lots within LEAF-range of my house (one SV and five SLs) -- five of them at one dealer!

Watching the dealer inventories around here I suspect that at least 4 have sold in January from the nearest two dealers (doesn't include that one that has five, I don't usually watch it).
