Nissan Leaf is no longer the best selling BEV

In 2018 it’s now officially the Tesla Model 3:

Global August Sales: Model 3 Dominates, Tesla #1 Overall

Leaf sales look like they’re going backwards, so there’s no chance of catching up now. Not when the M3 is being delivered at twice the monthly rate of the Leaf.

Wait until Tesla start selling outside of US and Canada...

Here in the UK, BEV sales are under under 1,000 a month. August was about 700. That is for all makes and models.

When the M3 finally gets here, I wouldn't be surprised if Tesla sell more than 1,000 a month.

At least Nissan are making money on LEAF. Carlos G. says Nissan are about the only manufacturer making a profit on EVs. That is about to change with Tesla getting close to break even.

Nissan might reverse the slide with their 2020EVs. If they deliver what was promised by the concept cars and keep the price below the M3, there is a chance. Waiting for spyshots.

VW are going to be an also ran. They are gearing up to build "up to" 100,000 BEVs per year in 2020. Sure there will be some people getting the Van thing for nostalgia or style. But 100,000 BEVs world wide per year in 2020 is too conservative. Model 3 production is somewhere around 3 times that number now.

Looking at the OP, VW aren't even in the top 20 for both models and overall. VW, the second largest car manufacturer in the world, aren't in the top 20.
