The 2011 Nissan Leaf is a car that is poised to change the common person’s method of travel. It can travel an estimated 100 miles on a single electric charge and when you purchase one it can have some significant tax credits associated with it. Even better is that if you were among the 56,000 or so people that signed up for more information, then Nissan made it possible for you to place a $99 reservation for your very own 2011 Leaf. So how many orders have they had so far?

As our partners over at AllCarsElectric.com reported yesterday, the 2011 Nissan Leaf has logged some 6000 orders and counting. In fact, TheCarConnection.com’s very own Marty Padgett has placed his own $99 reservation. The remaining question on the reservation front is when will people start to see their cars? The best estimates at this point is that the first sales will come in December of this year. The first sales groups will be in California, Washington, D.C. and Oregon. The remaining markets are scheduled to see their first sales in early 2011.

If you haven’t been up on your 2011 Nissan Leaf news, prices are set to start from $32,780 before any tax credits. The Federal government is trying to sweeten the deal and spur adoption by offering a $7,500 tax credit and then on top of that some states are offering additional incentives. There are even credits in some states that go towards the installation of charging stations for the Leaf. So with more than 6,600 orders (according to the Detroit Free Press) the Leaf is starting to put its green where its plug is.Be sure to stay tuned to AllSmallCars.com for more information on everything and anything small cars.
