Kelsey what information did you receive specifically? About reservations

Can you post it here?

Kevin


Hey Kevin,
I'm sorry, It looks I got excited over a reservations rumor. I just spoke to an EV operations manager and she said since everything has happeneded in Japan, they're not able to give out a specific date. They were thinking about resuming reservations after the fiscal year, but now they're trying to get the current orders back on track. She sent us an email that said production has resumed in Japan as of March 24th, so hopefully the Leafs will get to their new homes without much delay.

What area are you in and when is your ETA?

As far as allocation, we pretty much get what we sell. So far Newton Nissan has sold more than a dozen, but the delivery hasn't been made yet. I think we're expecting them in April. What about you guys, what's your delivery date?


Hi,
According to my OP at the Nissan site I have 2 LEAFs with VINs. If you follow some of the other topics, I mentioned that one of the cars is headed for Nashville (VIN 922), according to the dealer's printout sheet. Does anyone in TN have VIN yet and was curious if one of them matched what I know about the delivery location. The vehicle was manufactured in Feb 2011.

I am still waiting for my LEAF but hope the day arrives shortly.

Best wishes from Silicon Valley.

Any other Nashville leafs delivered recently?

I've seen a few around town (1 in La Vergne and 1 downtown) and I know of someone who took delivery of theirs last month from Nissan Downtown, but I haven't seen many active Nashville forum-goers here.

Ordered mine late February, but still have a pending delivery date =\

Hi Tennessee Leafers,
Just an update on the Leaf and delivery. My original VIN 922, which I was told by dealer was going to TN, ended up here in Silicon Valley. I received my LEAF with VIN 1571.

If you haven't received your LEAF yet, please wait patiently. It took me one year from reservation to driving the LEAF, but it was worth it.

Newton Nissan just received two Leafs yesterday. One was reserved by a customer in Nashville, and another was reserved by a customer in Gallatin. The service department just has to get the Leafs inspected and ready for customer delivery, and then they'll be home sweet home. :)

Congrats Linkim on receiving your new Leaf!

I just recently placed my order. March 29. I was one of the few who were able to place an order post quake. All order dates in March are still pending on estimated delivery date. As it looks in the spreadsheet, most orders Feb and prior have an estimated date so I'm assuming Nissan is trying to get all the order stuff straightened out and deal with the parts/paint shortages before scheduling March orders for production. Although they say that they still expect to have all current reservations become orders and filled by late summer. My email I received after placing my post-quake order said it would take 3-4 months for delivery to my dealer. If that is true, which I doubt, there is lots of hope for the others awaiting a Leaf. That would put my delivery in the June/July timeframe.

Hi Guys,

Any one in Metro Nashville area interested in getting together for some exchange of experience with the LEAF, and personal meeting in near future?

I would encourage everyone to take part owners as well as none owners, to build / support the LEAF cause.

Please voice your Ideas, and opinions on this here.

Regards,

Ralph

Hello RalphMC and other Nashville Leafs, I live in Medina, TN, which is a couple of hours west of Nashville. Looks like RalphMC and I are close on the original Leaf order dates, I ordered mine on 12/13/2010. Could have possibly been earlier, but due to a computer glitch in the reservation system on 4/20/10 I was unable to reserve until early May. As of this posting my delivery date on my DB has been stuck on July for several weeks.

When I last checked the forum spreadsheet related to vin's, orders, deliveries, etc., it looked like 5 or 6 Tennessee Leaf deliveries, mine being one of those, also a couple from the Nashville area in July. I would be very interested in joining you guys for a Leaf meeting in the Nashville area. Just keep me informed via the forum postings.

This past March, my wife and I were vacationing in the Phoenix, AZ area for a week and through the forum I met with a group of the Phoenix Leafs and it was a very informative, informal get-together. Many nice people there that had their Leafs with them for the meeting. I think they are meeting among themselves quarterly in Phoenix. Great idea, great fellowship and information exchange.

Good to hear you guys were able to deliver a couple of Leafs. This is exciting news! I've been emailing Justin regularly asking for updates on my order (and any new leafs at Newton). Patiently awaiting the arrival of my leaf!

I logged into my dashboard like every other day to check in hopes of having a "your car is ready for delivery!" or some good news like that.

Instead I found that my delivery date has changed from "pending" to "month of January 0001." See image.

Is there anyone in Nashville that has a DeLorean I can borrow in order to pickup my LEAF. I promise the fastest I will drive it is 88 mph. :lol: :lol:


On a more serious note, has anyone seen this before?
