Nissan LEAF Reservations

Fri Apr 23, 2010 1:25 pm

Today we announced that so far, we've secured 6,635 US reservations- in only three days!

A couple of other interesting tidbits:
• We had 2,700 reservations in the first 3 hours that reservations opened.
• 75% of reservations are for the upper trim level (includes fog lights, automatic headlights, rear-view monitor & solar panel spoiler)
• About 75% are from our primary launch markets where we have working partnerships (California, Washington, Oregon, Arizona and Tennessee)
• Most popular colors: blue and silver (other colors are red, black and white)

Here are a few articles -

Who on this forum has registered?! What color and features did you choose?

If you are still having a problem processing your Priority Reservation, you can manually reserve through our helpline at 1-877-NO GAS EV (664-2738). If you hadn't signed up on the website ahead of time, reservations will open to the general public on May 15.

I certainly reserved n the first day. Blue with SL trim level. Would have gone for green if offered. I am on of the 25% outside of the launch geographies. (Pennsylvania)

Jessica...a quick question.

Let's say somebody put down a deposit in the first hours, has a low reservation number, but doesn't live in an early release city/state.

Could a person that lives in let's say Albuquerque, New Mexico (not an early release city) drive down to Phoenix, AZ (which is an early release city) and get their LEAF in the early roll out cars?

Some people would like an electric car ASAP :)

Thanks

Gavin

I reserved a Red SL on Tuesday at around 230pm from San Diego. I was hoping for yellow, but Red works.

I'm not Jessica, but I can answer this one for ya...No, for many reasons: There will be no dealer repair support in NM, they want to closely monitor the early rollout cars, there will be no charging stations there like in the rollout cities, and you MAY have to show proof of residency for the intial rollout.

And then the other side of that coin is that Nissan has said you can buy it from any Leaf Certified Nissan dealer you want to. Does not have to be local to you. They may not even have specified a certified dealer, they may have said any Nissan dealer.

A related question, very important to many of us:

Nissan has specified I think five (???) states that are early roll-out markets. Will they sell the Leaf throughout those states, or only in one or a few of the principal cities in those states?

Of particular interest to me, living in Spokane, is whether the leaf will be sold here, or only in the Seattle area, where charging stations are being installed. I do not need charging stations away from home. I'll never drive the car farther than 80 miles in a day, and very seldom farther than 40 or 50.

So, will I be able to buy one? Or will I have to wait until the national roll-out?
Reserved afternoon of 4/20.

My guess is that the first 4700 (or 5000, or so) Leafs go just to the 10 (or 11) rollout cities that the NissanUsa site shows.

In CA, that is only one city, the San Diego area.

Question is, how big is the "area" around San Diego's "center" that Nissan is "supporting" for the rollout?
