In mid-November, we received confirmation from Nissan spokeswoman Katherine Zachary that the automaker's battery-powered Leaf will head to the U.S. in two separate shipments, both of which are scheduled to hit our shores by month's end. Just days ago, Zachary provided the folks over at Nissan-Leaf with some additional info that narrows down the Leaf's delivery date.

According to the report, Nissan plans to hold a ceremony celebrating the delivery of the first Leaf to an actual customer – Lance Armstrong doesn't count – in the U.S. in less than two weeks. The report continues, stating that:
To be factual, the first customer has already been chosen and the date set, although Nissan has has asked us to not be more specific than that. What we can say, unofficially, is that the first car will be in the SL trim, is black, has been produced and is on hand, and will be delivered to a northern Californian resident shortly.
We expect that Nissan will issue an official release with delivery dates and info regarding the lucky recipient of Leaf Number 1 any day now.
