Really? I was told that white is all they have left, I had to switch from red to white in order to be able to proceed.
Interested in a j1772 dummy inlet to hang your EVSE when not charging?

no no, i'll email you directly when that happens. i was just called by someone at HQ apologizing for the delay and explaining that the only SL trim cars remaining with chademo are white, and I needed to re-do my quote request to change it to white and then it would work. Although that was on Thursday and still nothing :?

Just came back to this thread, if some of this has been covered apologies in advance - I know of the first LEAF delivered in Ottawa, one in Toronto, and three out here on the West Coast. As far as transaction IDs go, they start at 11 (1 through 10 were Nissan tests). We were 12 - been a great few weeks with the car, everything we'd hoped. :)

Check out the discussions on Canada Nissan Leaf owner's page on Facebook.

Cheers!

Just an update/data point for all of you tracking Canadian deliveries:

Shortly after getting the email allowing me to request a quote, I went into the dealer to have them appraise the 2010 Toyota Prius I'll be trading in. Yes, I'm trading in the Prius because it burns too much fuel. (If they quote me on that, it'll be a great sound bite :) ). The dealer gave me a quote good for 3 months. The amount is less than I would hope for, but then I'm not willing to go through the hassle of trying to sell it myself, and the dealer has a tax advantage here. (The trade-in value decreases the amount on which I will have to pay sales tax... or, at least, that's the way it used to work.)

Ironically, one of the reasons I specifically bought a 2010 Prius was the EV button. I wanted to be able to at least go short distances at low speed on electric power. But the Prius really, really doesn't like the EV button. Going faster than something ridiculously slow like 12 km/h? No EV for you! Actually step on the accelerator? No EV for you! Battery at half charge? No EV for you! Cold out? No EV for you! Well, I want an EV. No Prius for me!

Ok, back to the story...

The dealer had difficulties accessing the web site. Repeatedly. So my quote was kind of on hold, though I knew that they were just going to say "MSRP". Then one day last week I got a message second-hand that if I wanted it sooner I would have to pick a different colour. So I said "rework my quote", then changed red to blue and then managed to get hold of the dealer who said that the issue wasn't colour, it was the quick charge port. In fact, blue isn't available! Eventually I managed to change it back to red, and delete the quick-charge port. I was only interested in getting the quick-charge port as a hedge against the future value of the car; I don't expect to be using it.

So, anyways, I was assured that a car has been reserved for me, and just now I received the "your pre-purchase checklist is now available" email. The delivery status now says "Pending".

Ok, now I'm almost a believer: when being asked to sign up for CARWINGS, they show you the VIN!

(And it makes sense, it starts with JN1AZ0CP0BT: J means Japan, N means Nissan, not sure about the next bits, the B means it's a 2011 model, and T means Oppama)

Saw that too. Did you notice when Carwings got activated? Mine says back in August. Shouldn't this get activated after you get the car, and not 3 months before you even start using it? There's only a subscription for 3 years, right? I don't want to give up 3 months of that time before the car even arrives.
reserved: 27/08/11

For example, my dashboard says 'at rail', yet it is also currently sitting at my dealership waiting for me to get off my lazy patoot and pick it up. If you have been waiting awhile, can't hurt to buzz by your dealership and try to eyeball for your car, lol.

My delivery status changed from "at rail" to "unavailable" yesterday, when the car arrived at the dealer.
I'll receive it Tuesday.

Where do you see that date?
On the leaf.nissan.ca portal, under "enable CARWINGS", mine say: "account activated: 29-Sep-2011" which is the date I activated it.
