At the moment, there are more Nissan Leafs on the world’s roads than any other electric car in history—closing in on 400,000. As of Jan 1, Nissan had delivered 380,000 Leafs globally, 130,000 of them in the United States.

Nissan is entirely aware that honor may not last long. It all depends on sales of the pricier but undeniably more advanced Tesla Model 3. Nevertheless, the company will highlight that statistic as long as possible to underscore its decade of commitment to selling mass-priced electric cars.

Last week, in San Diego, the 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus was rolled out to the media. It’s the version that finally gives the Leaf up to 226 miles of EPA-rated range, something it’s needed since January 2015.
