Nissan Leaf receives 6,635 reservations after only three days
Any doubts regarding the popularity of the new Nissan Leaf were quelled after Nissan’s first all-electric vehicle received 6,635 reservations in just three days since reservations were made available with each reservation coming with a required $99 refundable deposit online.
While the official public reservation for the Nissan Leaf will begin on May 15, people that have expressed prior interest in the car - those who forked over the 99 bucks - were given first dibs on reserving Nissan’s EV vehicle for themselves.
According to Nissan, the company is targeting the 25,000-order treshold by the time the car officially hits the market at the tail-end of the year. The 6,635 prior-reservations is a good start for Nissan in it’s mission to become one of the first brands to release an all-electric platform. The car is likewise expected to carry a price tag of $25,280, excluding the charging station each Leaf owner is required to have set up at their homes.
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.
