Official: Nissan Leaf reservations begin today

Article by Christian A., on August 30, 2010

Nissan is set on opening its pre-order process for the Leaf EV, its first mass-market electric vehicle. You can sign up for Leaf updates at NissanUSA.com where you can get a priority reservation spot amid the 115,000 people that have done so already. On May 15, reservations will open to the public.

Nissan will be sending out reservation instructions via email for the early adopters. Consumers will be able to configure their car and, after submitting a refundable $99 reservation fee, he or she will get a confirmation number and updates on their order.

The Leaf, which goes on sale this December, will have an MSRP of $32,780, but Nissan would like to clarify that the car qualifies for a $7,500 federal tax credit and state tax rebates where applicable.

Meanwhile, lease programs start at $349 a month. The standard features on the base SV trim include navigation, Web/smart phone connectivity for remote charging, Bluetooth connectivity, LED headlamps, keyless entry and ignition, stability control, and XM satellite radio.

For $940 more, the SL model gets a rearview camera, solar panel spoiler, fog lamps, and automatic headlamps. One feature that is excluded from these price figures is the cost of purchasing and installing a charger.

Nissan is currently working with AeroVironment to build and install the chargers. The manufacturer said that the average cost of purchasing and installing a charger will be $2200; however, owners will be able to recoup half the cost (up to $2000) via another federal tax incentive.
