The Nissan LEAF is unlike any car on the road. and buying one is unique too. it starts with a $99 reservation fee. it’s not a down payment – it’s a placeholder that saves your spot in line to get a LEAF. availability is limited* and not everyone is guaranteed to get one, but don’t worry – the fee is fully refundable.
The Nissan Leaf, the first 100% electric, zero-emission vehicle to reach the mass market will become available at dealers in December 2010.
However, so many people have expressed interest, that Nissan Motors has placed a link on its website where you can put down a small ($99 I heard) deposit to be one of the first to own the Nissan Leaf when it does become available.
The 2011 Nissan Leaf will have an MSRP of $32,790, with federal tax savings from 0 to $7,500.
