Reservations for Nissan Leaf will be opening on April 20

nleaf1-240x160$ 99 will put you first in line as soon as it is released if you've been waiting excitedly for the Nissan Leaf all-electric car. For months the Nissan Leaf website has been taking reservations but beginning on April 20, only $ 99 will put you on the list for when the Leaf is released.

Exactly what is this Leaf?

The Nissan Leaf is designed to be the first mass-market all-electric automobile within the United States of America. The Leaf comfortably covers most commute-and-errands distances with the 100 miles on a single charge it can do. The Leaf (also known as LEAF – Leading, Environmentally Friendly, Affordable Family auto) is should be accessible in Japan, North America and Europe.

How much is the leaf intended to price?

Within the US, it is suggested the Leaf is sold at $ 32,780. The price should drop to $ 25,280 with a federal tax credit. Other states are also including extra vehicle incentives. Georgia and California offers a $ 5,000 tax credit when Oregon has a $ 1,500 tax credit. The tax credit will start to end slowly after 200,000 autos are sold.

Is it possible to charge the Leaf at home?

The Nissan Leaf can charge, based upon on the station, in as little as 45 minutes. It could take up to 16 hours to charge on a normal household circuit. Nissan will offer a charging dock installed by AeroVironment, sold at price, as part of the essential purchase price.

Where is the Leaf available?

The Nissan Leaf can be released first in December of 2010 in “select markets” including Oregon, California, Washington, Arizona and Tennessee. Major States and Cities will also have charging stations added into them. In order to get in on this first release of the Nissan Leaf, a customer must pay the $ 99 reservation fee online. Approximately 4,700 autos can be accessible in this first roll-out. The availability of the Leaf can be increased in Spring of 2011 and full market availability in 2012.
