31Nissan Leaf available nationwide in March

The wait is over. After the initial launch in limited markets at the end of 2010 and a methodical rollout in 2011, the Nissan Leaf will finally be available to order all around the U.S. starting pretty much immediately. Nissan recently sent out an email that reads, in part:

23Watch a brace of Nissan Leaf EVs frolic in the snow

While there were concerns that the Nissan Leaf might not be a very good vehicle for colder climates, the automaker is ready to demonstrate otherwise. It recently invited a few dozen journalists to have a go in the snow with its signature all-electric on a test course in Shibetsu, Hokkaido in the north of Japan. Informative video ensued.

48Nissan Leaf snags 99 mpg rating on official EPA sticker

As far as we know, the first production Chevrolet Volt models are still awaiting their official EPA stickers. Nissan, though, has received the details on what the government agency has rated its all-electric Leaf at, and it looks good: a combined rating of 99 miles per gallon (equivalent) which breaks down into 106 city/92 highway. The official EPA range for the car is 73 miles, which Nissan admits is a variable (we know it can be beaten), and the annual electric cost is estimated at $561. The L

15Grassroots to BP CEO Tony Hayward: To go beyond petroleum, let's get you an electric car

BP CEO Tony Hayward isn't exactly the most popular businessman in the world these days. Socially tone-deaf, he's going to be remembered (rightly) for his callous "I want my life back" statement that came while his company's oil was ruining the lives of people living along the Gulf of Mexico. He has announced he will leave BP and, in two weeks, will be gone.

12Electric vehicle advocate Paul Scott "intends to be the number one Leaf salesman in the world"

For years, Paul Scott has been promoting electric vehicles (EVs) as a co-founder of Plug-In America, but he'll soon be promoting one EV a bit more than others in his new job as a Nissan Leaf salesman. Yes, after a private lunch with Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn in June and discussions with his local Nissan dealership (Santa Monica Nissan) through the summer, Paul will soon be the go-to guy for anyone who is interested in buying a Leaf in the area. It's sort of poetic that, after years trying to convi

If there's ever going to be a green car cage match, we can guarantee that one of the fighters will be Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk, who apparently can't pass up the chance to take on any competitor. His latest target? The lithium-ion battery pack in the Nissan Leaf, about which Musk had some critical things to say in a conference call with investors this week.

31Plug-in 2010: Nissan says "we are very comfortable" with Leaf battery warranty level

Following his announcement of the Nissan Leaf's 8-year, 100,000-mile warranty during the plenary session at the Plug-In 2010 Conference this morning, Nissan North America's executive vice president Carlos Tavares spent some time with reporters answering our questions about just what this means for Nissan and Leaf buyers. We asked the first question that came to our mind when the warranty details (such as they are at this point) were revealed, namely, how much more might this cost Nissan than Gen
