"Nissan LEAFs have been on the U.S. roads for one year now, and thousands of drivers have become living proof that a 100 percent electric, zero-emissions vehicle fulfills the daily needs of drivers from all walks of life," said Brian Carolin, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Nissan North America Inc. "We are seeing already-strong interest in the LEAF continue to grow across the country. This market expansion brings us one step closer to true, nationwide availability."

Nissan said the LEAF is now available for order in 30 U.S. states. The vehicle will be available nationwide by March 2012.
