Canada- Reservations

Fri Aug 26, 2011 11:43 am

After waiting eagerly, we're now informed that reservations will start shortly - for the 2011 model! Reservations for the 2012 model will open in October. After reading that the 2012 model incorporates improvements, following feed-back from early LEAF owners, I'm left wondering why anyone would purchase the older model? Will there be a price break, as with new model announcements of Apple products?

Guessing thats a 2011 with the cold package, have to be nuts to skip that option in Canada

if so I would think its the best deal on pricing to get a 2011 with cold pack

as opposed to a 2012 model thats more $
2012 SL Leaf

Thanks - but I haven't seen any pricing information re 2011 v 2012 anywhere other than the CDN$38,395 starting figure. And I cannot find mention of the 'cold pack' on the Nissan.ca site.

The cold weather package is now standard in all '12 LEAF's; Canadians who were already in the mailing list from the beginning can pay their $99 placeholder fee upon receiving the invitation email this Sunday at 12 noon EDT.

Numbers are limited and those who do not make it in the first round must wait for the second reservation period in October.

2011 LEAF's are sold out since July, the only ones out there are orphans and demo cars that the dealerships can not sell for several months.

Thanks. I also heard from Nissan Canada that "It is completely your choice if you wish to wait for MY12 vehicle. The car is totally the same with no difference in specs. The pricing is not yet officially released but will be in the same ballpark."

Well that little process took me almost 3 hours! Why? Well apart from the 'traffic-jam' we weren't warned not to use Google's Chrome browser and then after switching to Firefox, the Province box on the sign up page kept reverting to Alberta, as soon as the 'Next' button appeared (which seemed to take 10 minutes or so!) After a few error messages "postal code does not match Province, I realized what was happening and took care to correct the Province before pressing the 'Next' button.
This was followed by error messages asking for an e-mail address (even though one had been provided) but there was no data entry box for the e-mail address! Messages to Nissan resulted in an apology "IT are looking into it" and shortly (30 minutes) thereafter, Lo and Behold two e-mail boxes ('Enter address' and 'Confirm address') appeared!

The rest went more smoothly.

Hope this helps.

3 hours? Wow, you really got snared. Did it actually complete/take your money and give you a transaction ID under 40/resevation number so you get the 2011 in October?

Or did you get the "Nissan LEAFreaches reservation milestone" once all that hoopla was done.

(Random note on the cold weather package: All Canadian LEAFs for 2011 are spec'd as SV-CW or SL-CW)

I just received an e-mail confirming that I was 'in' and that I would be receiving a further e-mail containing a reservation number.
I've also booked the 'Home-charger' assessment visit (earliest date mid-September).
I've been promised that I could have my LEAF "by the end of the year! Not exactly 'soon'!

So it seems that the Canadian LEAF's are 2011 with cold weather package standard but no quick charging port, that is optional.

That would make an SL + QC almost $41,000 CAD.... Ouch!
