Nissan Leaf Reservations Reach 17,000 in US and Japan

Nissan announced they had reached 12,000 reservation for the US late Tuesday night, saying “Thanks to all of you who have made a reservation for a Nissan Leaf, we surpassed 12k today!”

While the number had reached 9,500 as of the last update late last week, orders had slowed somewhat because the reservation system had only been open to those who had expressed an earlier interest in purchasing or learning about Nissan’s electric car.

That changed this past Saturday as anyone in the US now has the opportunity to put their refundable $99 deposit down; and it showed in the bookings with the number jumping by 2,500 units in the past 72 hours.

Nissan aim to have 25,000 reservations in the US by the end of 2010 and have fill 48% of those slots within the first month alone.
