Nissan amassed nearly 20,000 orders for its new 2018 Leaf EV when the order books opened up in Europe and Japan, which is a pretty solid figure.

Nissan has accumulated about 13,000 orders for the 2018 Leaf in the US, Engadget reports, citing a conversation with Nissan during the 2018 Detroit Auto Show.

The 2018 Leaf entered US production in December, and deliveries are expected to begin en masse early this year.

This swell of demand means that Nissan is doing something right with the Leaf's redesign.
