Actually LEAF is a backronym. The came up with the word first and made up an acronym to fit.
Exactly. It doesn't need to be an acronym. To me, LEAF is the green thing on a tree... nothing more or less.

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"
2011 SL; 44,598 mi, 87% SOH. 2013 S; 44,840 mi, 91% SOH. 2016 S30; 29,413 mi, 99% SOH. 2018 S; 25,185 mi, SOH 92.23%. 2019 S Plus; 11,333.1 mi, 93.73% SOH
