From time to time, our inbox explodes with a story that brings us to near laughter and, thanks to tipster Guillame, today was one of those times. 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." The Roadshow's purpose was quite simple: Nissan wanted the Irish folk to see the Leaf, drive it and, hopefully, fork over some money to pre-order it.
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.
