Initial Demand for Nissan Leaf is High

Nissan is pretty happy so far with the initial demand for their 100 mile range electric vehicle, the Leaf. According to reports, more than 6,000 pre-orders have been made in just the first three days.

There were 117,000 people who registered on the Nissan website to be informed when the Leaf was ready to be ordered. Within the first three hours of opening up reservations, 2,700 of those followed up with a small down payment to pre-order their Leaf.

Nissan has the capacity to build 50,000 Leafs in the first year. 3,700 people pre-ordered in Japan, making sure the supply will be going to both countries at first. That's going to keep the waiting list up if the reservation list keeps growing.

Part of the demand for the Leaf is coming from the price tag. Combined with the federal and state tax credit, you could be paying just over $20,000 for an all electric vehicle. Of course, you have to be living in the right state.

Nissan is hoping for 25,000 pre-orders by December.
