Actually LEAF is a backronym. The came up with the word first and made up an acronym to fit.

Dealer search (if accurate) indicates 12 2018's were delivered yesterday. So finally the flow starts but its still on the very distant horizon from THE largest EV friendly regions in World; the American West Coast.

So the only thing I would change would be "leading" to "lagging"
