After punching in some numbers on the good ol' calculator, we've concluded that if the entire nation displayed as much interest in the Leaf as Hawaii's 1.3 million residents have, Nissan would be able to boast that it has grabbed more than 70,000 per-orders thus far. Of course, Nissan is far short of reaching that mark. The Leaf's appeal in Hawai'i can be chalked up to several factors that we touched on before, but the state's $4,500 incentive, combined with the federal government's $7,500 rebate, surely convinces many Hawai'i residents that the Leaf is affordable enough to give it a try.
