    Odd. I still haven't gotten any emails from Nissan lately. I wonder what that means?

    That's because you only just reserved. BTW, I have doubts you'll see your car within the 8 or 9 months you were hoping for.

    Oops. I did get it, or rather my spam folder did. So if you're missing an email, check your spam folder! :p

    Looks like I got the good email. Yay!

    Well, I am in Florida and got the "bad" email. I don't know that Florida has any charging stations. However, Florida is really flat! :confused:

    can you clarify the "...get 50% tax credit for the home charger installation" ?

    I must be completely off because all this while (that I read somewhere), I assumed that Nissan was going to help cover the complete costs of the home charger install (with or without the tax incentive) for the 1st wave of purchasers.

    Now I am confused. Do let me know what's the real scoop. Thanks!

    You are referring to the ecotality/etec "evproject". Log into the nissan leaf web page and see if there is an extra questionnaire available to you. If you met certain criteria to be part of "theevproject" then they would cover your 220v charger installation.

    More information at theevproject.com

    I think Nissan was also going to be coordinating (and paying for?) an on premises electrician to evaluate installation for all first wave buyers (regardless of "evproject" status.). Which would then get a quote, which would give you numbers for what 50% of the cost (up to $2000 total credit ) that would be considered a tax credit.

    Hope this helps.

    A Nissan LEAF as a second car to the Prius makes a lot of sense.

    However I'll refrain from an all electric until they prove themselves worthy in the snowbelt region, like in Canada.
