As of March 1, the Nissan Leaf is available in all U.S. markets nationwide, according to a Nissan North America Inc. (NNA) press release.

On March 1, reservation holders in the remaining 21 states received emails from Nissan inviting them to order their Leaf, and by March 8, businesses and residents in these new markets will have the opportunity to place a reservation as well. Deliveries will start taking place in these new markets by summer.

According to NNA, the Nissan Leaf is now the first plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) model available in all 50 states.

“More than 22,000 Leafs are on the roads globally, having driven more than 30 million miles,” said Brian Carolin, senior vice president, sales and marketing, NNA. “There is no longer any doubt that a 100% electric, zero-emissions vehicle fulfills the needs and desires of drivers from around the globe.”
