Nissan Reaches 20,000 LEAF Pre-orders

Nissan has reached its goal of 20,000 pre-orders for its all-electric LEAF three months ahead of schedule.

Nissan had been expecting to hit the 20,000 LEAF pre-orders mark by early December.

Consumers who already have made reservations will continue to have the opportunity to purchase or lease an all-electric Nissan LEAF. Orders have been prioritized based on market timing and when consumers submitted their original reservations online and paid their refundable $99 reservation fee.

If you didn’t reserve a LEAF and still want to, you can sign up on, and you’ll be contacted in advance of the next phase of reservations in 2011.

The Nissan LEAF base price of $32,780 falls to $25,280 with a $7,500 federal tax credit. If you live in California, you qualify for a $5,000 rebate, which brings the price down to $20,280. Other states have rebates as well. Hawaii offers $4,500. Colorado provides $6,000. Washington State has a $2,000 sales tax exemption, Oregon provides a $1,500 tax credit and the State of Tennessee will offer $2,500 rebates.

Consumers and other interested drivers will have the first opportunity to test-drive a Nissan LEAF in select markets starting Oct. 1 through the “Drive Electric Tour.” The tour will provide information about the car, its technology, and its features, along with the first public test-drives.
