U.S. sales of the Nissan LEAF numbered 30,200 in 2014, marking the first time any plug-in battery electric vehicle has sold more than 30,000 U.S. units in a single year, according to Nissan.

Nissan sold 3,102 LEAFs in December, a 22.7 percent increase from the prior year and a December record, the automaker added.

"Now in its fifth model year, Nissan LEAF is more popular than ever and continues to bring new buyers to Nissan," said Brendan Jones, director of Nissan's electric vehicle sales and Infrastructure. "From the beginning our vision was to bring electric vehicles to the mass market in a practical and fun-to-drive package, which is what makes Nissan LEAF the best-selling electric car in the world."
