Welcome to EV Customer Support, Sean will be right with you.
Thank you for contacting Nissan Electric Vehicle Customer Support, my name is Sean. How may I help you today Christopher?
When the leaf is available which cites in California will get it?
Thanks for your interest in the Nissan Leaf Electric Vehicle. I'd be happy to answer that for you, Christopher. Please give me a few moments while I answer that for you. While I gather this information for you, for demographic purposes, can I have your last name email address and zip code please.
Nissan has a statewide rollout planned for California. The Nissan LEAF will be made available in specific states initially in December, including Oregon, Washington, California, Arizona, and Tennessee. Shortly thereafter more states will be included, first rolling out to key markets in which we have partnerships such as Orlando and Houston. The Nissan LEAF will be available across the country by late 2011.
So at rollout I should get my reservation in December in Los Angeles (depending on my place in line)?
Is that right?
Yes. I see you have registered on the Leaf website for updates and news. You will be receiving news about the rollout as it happens.
And Nissan will update you on the progress of your order around the end of June.
