Update on the Nissan LEAF 2012 Model Year
There is no doubt that the 2011 Nissan LEAF has been a hit among consumers. It was even named 2011 World Car of the Year. It's hard to imagine that the 2012 models could get any better. But, it has, both in terms of technological features and availability.
Nissan only released the LEAF to select markets including including California, Washington, Oregon, Arizona, and Tennessee. This was because these states are where Nissan factories or company headquarters are. Simply stated, it was the most budget-minded way possible to test how consumers responded to the innovative car.
Now that Nissan has tested the market and are pleased with its response the Japanese automaker is going ahead with their plans to extend availability for the 2012 model year, adding 10 states to the list: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Washington D.C. So if you live in one of these states mark the date, you can start placing orders beginning on August 4.
So you might be wondering if there are any new improvements. In response to consumer feedback, Nissan has decided to make the DC Fast Charger a standard feature rather than an option on the SL trim. They're also adding a standard battery warmer, heated steering wheel, and heated front and rear seats to the entire range.
Given the numerous upgrades made to the SL and base SV, each model will be a bit more expensive than last year's model. We are, however, confident you'll find the added comfort/convenience more than worth it.
