Reservations for Nissan Leaf Starting in April; Still No Price Tag
Nissan will begin taking reservations for the Nissan Leaf in April, actual orders can be placed in August and cars will be delivered by the end of the year. But a big question sitll looms – how much will it cost?
You can reserve a Leaf for a $100 refundable fee, but as for the actual cost of the EV, the company has only said that it will be competitively priced with similar-sized vehicles, but that allows for a decent price range.
Even with the mystery, the car has picked up quite a bit of momentum lately. Nissan just finished a nationwide tour with the vehicle, drumming up publicity and securing partnerships with 18 launch cities that will install charging stations and get EV-ready in time for the car’s release. The company also received a $1.4 billion loan from the DOE this month to begin manufacturing the car and its batteries at a plant in Smyrna, TN.
