Nissan Collects $650,865 In Three Days

Any doubts regarding the popularity of the new Leaf were quelled after Nissan’s first all-electric vehicle collected some 6635 deposits totaling over $650,000 in just three days. The deposit will guarantee your place in line when the Leaf goes on sale, and will also allow you to track the progress of your Leaf.

OK, you put your $99 down and you are starting to feel all green inside; now what?
You wait until December and then you will be required to submit information to Nissan about your driving pattern to make sure you fit the car's limited range. There will also be a review of your home electrical system and local building code to make sure that the home charging system can be successfully installed.

If you were looking to become the uber-green guy on the block by buying more than one, you’re out of luck. . . Nissan has explicitly said they will allow only one Leaf reservation per household.

It looks to me like there is a lot of people out there sold on the EV concept, and willing to put their money where their mouth is, albeit refundable money. It has shown a definite consumer need to be the first on the block to have this new all-electric car. On top of the popularity the Leaf has obviously gained, Nissan is optimistic that the interest surrounding the Leaf will continue to grow as the months pass.
