Another milestone in the slow and deliberate rollout of EVs was reached today, as Nissan announced that the LEAF is now available for order in all US markets. You can’t grab the keys just yet, however – the company says that it will begin deliveries in the final 21 launch states this summer.

The 2012 Nissan LEAF has a MSRP of $35,200 for the SV trim level, and $37,250 for the SL trim level. It’s eligible for a $7,500 federal tax credit, and an additional $1,500 rebate in California.

“More than 22,000 LEAFs are on the roads globally, having driven more than 30 million miles,” said Nissan’s Brian Carolin. “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.”
