Nissan expands availability of the all-electric LEAF into new U.S. markets

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 8, 2011

The availability of the all-electric Nissan LEAF in the U.S. has been expanded into new markets, according to Nissan North America Inc. This was announced just a few days before the delivery of the first Nissan Leaf marks its first anniversary on Dec. 11. Since it was launched a year ago, 20,000 deliveries throughout the world have been made. At this point, the Leaf is still the first and only all-electric car for the mass market.

Nissan has recently resumed taking reservations and orders from the public for the 2012 Nissan LEAF in Delaware, Indiana, Louisiana, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island. The latest Leaf is offered with more standard equipment including quick charging and features for the cold weather. Leaf deliveries for the 2012 model year in these markets will start in the spring of 2012.

Brian Carolin, senior vice president, Sales and Marketing, NNA, said that the thousands of Leaf units sold in the U.S. is “living proof” that a 100% electric, zero-emissions vehicle meets the everyday requirements of drivers from all walks of life.

He said that the interest in the Leaf continues to rise throughout the nation and Nissan is one step closer to offering “true, nationwide availability.” The Leaf can be ordered in 30 states, which include Washington, D.C. But beginning in March 2012, the Leaf can be ordered in 50 states.
