Nissan receives 20,000th reservation for the Leaf electric car

Article by Christian A., on September 24, 2010

It appears that Nissan made quite a buzz on the market with the Leaf electric vehicle as the manufacturer announced that it received the 20,000th reservation for the 100-percent EV. This reservation marks the completion of the first phase of the Nissan Leaf rollout, which was started five months ago.

The next phase of the reservations will begin next year, after the current reservations and orders have been processed.

Apparently, each person paid a refundable $99 reservation fee, and all of them will have the opportunity to purchase or lease an all-electric Leaf.

The new Nissan Leaf will be powered by an AC motor delivering 80kW of power and 280Nm of torque, providing a top speed of more than 140km/h (90 mph).

The total range of the car is approximately 160 km or 100 miles, which means it will be more than enough for most of the drivers. The lithium-ion battery has a power output of more than 90kW and it is mounted under the seats and floor of the Nissan Leaf, which means that the car has a lower center of gravity and better stability.

As of today, 20,000 consumers have spoken, and they are choosing the Nissan LEAF and a zero-emission future,” said Brian Carolin, senior vice president, Sales and Marketing, Nissan North America.

We, along with our dealers, now look forward to focusing on providing an absolute top-level purchase experience to our first customers, and to help ensure that the transition to gas-free driving is a seamless one. We invite all who are interested in experiencing the Nissan LEAF to join us at the upcoming Drive Electric Tour, which is coming to 23 cities beginning this fall.”
