The 2011 Nissan LEAF was so popular when it was introduced last year, the car had a long waiting list many signed up for, and was only available in certain states. 2012's edition will head to Superior Nissan in Fayetteville, AR, and various other dealers across the country will be privy to the electric car.
As the world's first mass produced all-electric car, LEAF has attracted attention from eco-car lovers and auto critics alike since its introduction. This time, anyone will be able to test drive one. A new blog, NissanLEAFDrivers.com, will feature content from 14 LEAF owners, sharing personal experiences of owning an electric car.
Orders for 2012's Nissan LEAF began in Colorado, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey and New York. Deliveries of LEAF, with additional standard equipment including quick charging for 2012, will take its place in all key markets by year's end.
"Consumers have spoken, and it's clear that they are looking for a car that produces zero emissions and uses no gas," said Brian Carolin, senior VP of Sales and Marketing at Nissan North America. "We are seeing tremendous consumer interest in the Nissan LEAF in these new markets, particularly in the New York metropolitan area."1
