Nissan expects to complete the Leaf’s nationwide rollout by March. The car’s staunchest competitor, the Chevrolet Volt, is already available nationwide.
So far this year, Nissan has sold some 8,720 Leafs, which is more year-to-date than other Nissan models like the Nissan 370Z or Infiniti EX. GM has managed to move only 6,142 Volts so far, even with wider availability.
Those numbers will likely guarantee the Leaf as the most popular electric vehicle for 2011.
