The Japanese carmaker sold 1,579 units of the zero-emission vehicle in October, a significant 76% increase from one year before in October, 2011.

In an effort to gain more branding awareness of the Leaf, Nissan recently started a global campaign to boost sales further:

“The Japanese automaker is looking to boost Leaf sales and, late last month, unveiled its first global ad campaign. Nissan pitched features such as being able to use the car as a back-up power supply for homes in addition to the no-pollution, no-gas angle.”
