Nissan LEAF Customers Said to be Growing Impatient
Nissan's carefully orchestrated rollout of its all-electric Leaf has been much slower than many consumers expected, angering a growing number of passionate early adopters and threatening the automaker's ambitions of making the Leaf the dominant mass-market electric car.
The Bay Area is considered the Leaf's top market. But the cars are just now beginning to trickle in to local dealerships -- Boardwalk Nissan in Redwood City got four Leafs on Thursday. Some who ordered a Leaf months ago have seen their delivery dates pushed back; others have been told to expect a four- to seven-month wait.
"I've got people chomping at the bit," said one California Nissan dealer who did not want to be identified. "They want their car, and when people started getting e-mails from Nissan saying it would be four to seven months, my phone blew up."
