At the beginning of the year, Nissan cut the price of the 2013 Nissan LEAF electric car. Unsurprisingly, this resulted in more demand for it (economics 101!). To meet that higher demand, Nissan has said that it will increase production of the LEAF in Tennessee.
Jose Munoz, Nissan's senior vice president of sales and marketing for the Americas, said the Leaf is now the top reason customers are referred to the Nissan brand, adding that the vehicle is profitable. [...] Munoz said the company was still weighing exactly how much it will boost output at the Smyrna, Tennessee plant where it produces the Leaf, but added it would be "an important increase." (source)
