Fair or foul?  Nissan took a little jab at Tesla's recent woes in New Jersey, by posting the above photograph of the LEAF "available in all 50 states, including New Jersey."

Nissan Tweet caption: “It’s okay #NewJersey, you can still #GoElectric with the #NissanLEAF #EV”

Naturally reactions to the tweet ranged from mildly amused to outraged.   However, Nissan quickly had a change of heart about the tweet, removed it, then promptly put the blame on their advertising agency.

Thankfully, the keen-eyed folks at AutoBlogGreen not only saved the image (above), but got in touch with Rob Robinson, senior specialist of social communications for Nissan about the Tesla slight.

"Was not a tweet that was reviewed or approved by Nissan. We saw it and asked them to take it down. We thought it was a discussion we didn't need to be weighing in on."
