Hot Off the Assembly Line, With Brand New ElectronsBeginning today, Americans from all 50 states will be able to get their hands on an all-electric LEAF from Nissan. The rollout had started with only a handful of states, but now Nissan is adding the remaining 21 states that it didn't already cover to its distribution network and "drivers across the country will have their first opportunity to order their Nissan LEAF, as Nissan North America Inc. (NNA) expands availability for all U.S. markets, nationwide."
There's not much more to add except what is in Nissan's press release:
"More than 22,000 LEAFs are on the roads globally, having driven more than 30 million miles," said Brian Carolin, senior vice president, Sales & Marketing, NNA. "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. 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, reservation holders in the remaining 21 states will receive emails from Nissan inviting them to engage in the Nissan LEAF ordering process. One week later, anyone living in these new markets will have the opportunity to place a reservation and order a Nissan LEAF. Deliveries will start taking place in these new markets by summer.
