Washington Residents Can Now Reserve A Nissan LEAF

2


Nissan LEAF followers in Washington state are in luck. Nissan is now allowing residents in the state of Washington the opportunity to reserve a Nissan LEAF car.

Washington was allocated a certainty quantity of vehicles initially, but due to the backlog of orders and Nissan’s production schedule, that allocated number of vehicles was put on hold.  then had to wait due to the backlog of orders and Nissan production schedule. Now Nissan is making things right and allowing Washington state residents the chance to get their hands on a LEAF.

Nissan’s official website has been updated with the following information: “if you want to park a 2011 Nissan LEAF™ in your driveway, then there’s no time to waste. reservations are now open to a limited number of customers in launch markets, but the 2011 models won’t be around long and neither will their price. so, take the first step in your order process by using the link below to reserve your LEAF™ today”.

According to Craig Campbell, at Campbell Nelson Nissan in Seattle, the reservation process involves two step.  The first step is where those interested in the Nissan LEAF vehicle indicate that they would like the chance to order one of the vehicle. The second step is where the customer is given the opportunity to order, as their name moves to the top of the queue. Campbell also said that Campbell Nelson Nissan currently has LEAF models coming and going at the dealership. LEAF enthusiasts can visit the dealership and see the vehicle in-person, but that is not a guarantee so it would be best to call ahead of time to make sure.

There was no mention of being able to test drive the EV, but then again there was a time when the only way you could see the Nissan LEAF was during their official city tour.

    I live in Washington State only a few miles from Campbell Nelson Nissan – VW. I spotted a red Leaf in my neighborhood two months ago, and have seen the same one a few times now. Sunday I noticed a second one ( blue ) and I wonder just how prolific the EVs will get in this time of $4.00 per gallon gas.

    Nissan did take the low road and poke a jab at the Volt – which indeed shows their inferiority complex, I think. Why bash a plug-in hybrid when both accomplish the same goal and sell to completely different customers? If the Leaf had thermally conditioned batteries and a range-extender, then they’d be direct competitors-but it doesn’t and they’re not.

    By now we all know nobody in a Leaf is getting 100 miles per charge without hypermiling in moderately warm weather. Lance Armstrong driving a Leaf is quite the picture – both seem to have secrets to hide – yet I endorse both as they both represent something valid – whether they, themselves are worthy of being put up as examples – or not.

    I hope both Nissan Leafs and Chevy Volts sell like crazy. This world is big enough for both, and folks like Plug In America founders have both and it would be very interesting to hear their honest takes on each. I think a pure EV is a natural for a second car if one can afford that. The PHEV works best for longer trips and emergencies – the EV for those common short trips around town.

    In any case it’s become apparent that a Leaf driver has more limitations that at first foreseen. As a parent of two small children in school, one EV shortcoming became clear to me – the fact I could not rush to my kids if my EV was short on charge, thus in an emergency I would be stuck – and to me, that was the deal-killer. it’s that one time when you need to rush to the hospital or to your children in school – that one time a looming natural disaster says – GET OUT OF DODGE! – that Leaf becomes a big paperweight. When this dawned on me I knew I had to write such on one of Nissan’s many surveys sent me by email. I said I had decided Leaf had too many limitations and I would save for a Volt, that a pure EV would need 200 miles range minimum for me to take that plunge.

    RECHARGE!

    i am in n. c. awaiting my turn to order one of the leaf’s. I WAS INTERESTED IN THAT COMMENT ABOUT THE PRICE. WE ARE ALL WONDERING HOW LONG IT IS GOING TO TAKE THEM TO JACK UP THE PRICE SINCE DEMAND IS SO HIGH. IT WILL COME DOWN TO THAT FOR ME. IF THEY INCREASE THE PRICE A FEW THOUSAND BUCKS AND THE $7,500 TAX CREDIT DISAPPEARS I WILL DROP OUT OF THE LINE WAITING FOR ONE!. THE TAX CREDIT EXPIRES ON JAN. 1, 2012 SO IT IS LIKELY A LOT OF FOLKS WILL JUST STEP ASIDE AND LET THE LEAF GO BY……..MAX BRADEY
