“The U.S. will be the largest market for the i3.”
This is the prediction of Harald Krüger, BMW production chief, who has now increased production of the i3 to reach an annual output of 20,000 units.
“With the all-electric e-NV200 van being released later this year it is an exciting time for Nissan and we believe we will see a further increase in demand for the rest of this year and into 2015.”
Nissan GB corporate sales director Barry Beeston comments on the last financial year which saw Leaf sales increase by 132%. The demand was driven by fleet operators.
