RESERVATIONS CLOSE FOR FIRST WAVE OF NISSAN LEAF SALES IN CANADA

 

-      First Canadian consumer allocation of Nissan LEAFs reserved within two hours –

MISSISSAUGA, ON (August 29, 2011) – Over the weekend, Nissan Canada opened the reservation process for the Nissan LEAF, with all Model Year 11 inventory reserved by Canadian consumers within two hours. At noon on Saturday, August 27th, those registered atwww.nissan.ca/leaf and living within the vicinity of one of the 27 Nissan LEAF certified dealers, were invited to reserve a Nissan LEAF, bringing them one step closer to having the all-electric car plugged into their home garage.

 

“Response from Canadians since we first revealed the Nissan LEAF in 2009 has been astounding so we’re not surprised that our first inventory of 40 model year ‘11 cars were snapped up so quickly,” said Judy Wheeler, Director of Marketing, Nissan Canada, Inc. “We expect this momentum to continue when we reopen reservations for model year ’12 cars in the coming month, so keep your eyes open for more and more Nissan LEAFs driving around Canadians cities soon.”

 

Delivery to the first wave of consumers will begin in September and continue into the fall. Nissan is carefully managing the purchase process from the first step, when consumers sign up on www.nissan.ca/leaf, until the customer drives the Nissan LEAF home and plugs it into a personal charging dock. Through Model Year 12, Nissan expects to release around 600 Nissan Leaf on the Canadian market through several waves of reservations into next year.

 

Reservations for Model Year 12 Nissan LEAFs will open in the coming months and be:

  • Open to those registered at www.nissan.ca/leaf and living within the vicinity of a Nissan LEAF certified dealer. All details, including exact timing for the opening of reservations, will be distributed via email in advance.
  • A $99 reservation fee (fully refundable) is required to secure a reservation.
  • After booking a home-charging assessment, customers will receive an invitation to order a Nissan LEAF.
