Over the weekend, Nissan Canada officially opened the reservation process for the all-electric Leaf. Within two hours, all Canada-bound Model Year 2011 Leafs were reserved. Wow! Two hours!

AddHawaii goes Leaf crazy as Nissan reports 300+ pre-orders from island state

Nissan's recently announced pairing with the state of Hawaii that reinforces our view that our nation's only island state is ideal for electric vehicles (EVs). With the Leaf's arrival in Hawai'i scheduled for January 2011, Nissan is now reporting that pre-orders for its electric hatchback have eclipsed the 300 mark. Since Nissan has tallied more than 18,000 U.S. pre-orders for the Leaf, 300 for Hawai'i doesn't seem like much. That is, until you consider that the state's entire population amounts

AddEurope's "amazing response" to the Leaf nets Nissan only 100 pre-orders in Ireland

In case you weren't aware, the Nissan Leaf arrived in Ireland on the 4th of August and took the staring role in the "Nissan Leaf Roadshow."

Luckily, we almost immediately get wind of any slip-up and bring it directly to you. Case in point: CNN Money writer Peter Valdes-Dapena spoke with Nissan spokesman Steve Oldham. Among other things, the discussion focused on production numbers for the Leaf. As expected, Oldham's responses were scarce on details, but he may have inadvertently let some specifics fly.

AddNissan misses deadline for Leaf, company still finalizing ordering details

Up until now, Nissan has managed the pre-ordering process for the Leaf without a hitch. From taking reservations to conducting home charger assessments, the step-by-step process of ordering the Leaf has moved right along with seamless precision, making Nissan appear rather well prepared to undertake the complex process of offering a breakthrough electric vehicle to the public. Prepared or not, we expected a snag somewhere along the way and it finally happened.

AddNissan Leaf hits 15,000 pre-orders, Aqua Globe blue most popular

The initial surge for Nissan Leaf pre-orders has long since died down, but the company is still steadily racking up more potential sales, albeit at a much slower rate. The last time that we updated the Leaf's pre-order status, U.S. interest stood at 13,000 strong with an additional 6,000 claimed in Japan. Now, Nissan reports that more than 15,000 U.S. buyers have plunked down their $99 reservation fee and stepped in line for the Leaf. Combining the U.S. and Japan, pre-orders for the Leaf now sta
