  5. Nissan Leaf & the end of ICEage

    I was allowed to order today. Because of the way Nissan has handled all the reservation & ordering through internet - dealers were competing for the orders and I could get a quote from a dealer for thousand below list price. With accessories it came to $32,500 - and after 7,500 tax credit later will be a nice round figure of 25,000. Same as most family sized ICE cars and Prius.

    Hmmm ... the front looks like something from 80s ...
  7. Nissan Leaf & the end of ICEage

    Today Nissan started taking orders for Leaf - from the first batch of reservation holders. These people will get their cars in December. Most of them ordered within 10 minutes of getting their emails on Apr-20th. I'm in the next batch - which means probably a January delivery ...
