As Nissan completes the final phase of its North American Leaf roll out, the company says the battery electric car will be available nationwide as of today.
Nissan says residents of 21 remaining states will be able to select and order a 2012 Nissan LEAF in this final phase of the roll out.
“More than 22,000 Leafs are on the roads globally, having driven more than 30 million miles. There is no longer any doubt that a 100-percent electric, zero-emissions vehicle fulfills the needs and desires of drivers from around the globe,” said sales and marketing senior vice president of Nissan North America Brian Carolin. ”Nationwide availability of the Nissan Leaf means that now, anyone in the country can opt for a transportation solution that does not harm the environment, provides a pathway to energy independence, and doesn’t use a single drop of gas.”
On March 1, Nissan says that reservation holders in the remaining 21 states will receive emails from the company inviting them to engage in the Nissan Leaf ordering process. One week later, anyone living in these new markets will be able to place a reservation and order a Leaf. Deliveries will start begin in these new markets by summer, the company says.
