Nissan North America (NNA) is expanding the availability of its all-electric Leaf sedan in the U.S. to 30 states, with plans to have the LEAF available in all 50 states along with Washington DC by March of next year.

The OEM said it’s now taking orders from the general public for the 2012 Leaf in seven new states ( in addition to the 23 where the vehicle is already available): Delaware, Indiana, Louisiana, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island.

“Nissan Leafs have been on the U.S. roads for one year now, and thousands of drivers have become living proof that a 100% electric, zero-emissions vehicle fulfills the daily needs of drivers from all walks of life,” said Brian Carolin, NNA senior vp-sales & marketing.

“We are seeing already-strong interest in the LEAF continue to grow across the country,” he added. “This market expansion brings us one step closer to true, nationwide availability.”

Carolin also noted that the 2012 Leaf features additional standard equipment, including quick charging and cold-weather features.
