With the one-year anniversary of the Leaf’s launch coming up on Dec. 11, Nissan has made the all-electric hatchback available in seven new US markets. The company has begun taking orders for the 2012 model in Delaware, Indiana, Louisiana, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island. Deliveries will begin in spring 2012.

The Leaf is now available for order in 30 states, and the rest are scheduled to follow by March 2012. So far, Nissan has sold about 20,000 units worldwide.

"Nissan Leafs have been on the US 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 Nissan VP Brian Carolin. "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."
