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.
