Nissan Leaf is sold out until March

Tom Webster

Nissan has already sold out the initial production run of its electric car, the Leaf.

Any customers wanting to get their hands on the car, which will cost £23,350 after the government's £5,000 low-emission subsidy has been applied, will now have to wait until April at the very earliest, with Nissan having already taken 1,000 orders in Europe.
