It’s been a long time coming. Over the course of this week, the first dealer shipments of the all-electric 2011 Nissan Leaf and the 2011 Chevrolet Volt will arrive at showrooms. The first Leafs have already been delivered to the San Francisco Bay area.
The first shipment of Volts — around 350 vehicles this week — has been sent to California, Texas, New York and Washington, D.C. and should arrive shortly at dealerships.
Just a quick refresher: The Nissan Leaf has an MSRP of $32,780 and the Chevy Volt has a $40,280 price tag, not including the cars’ destination fees. There’s a $7,500 tax credit available for both cars if you qualify. Almost all of the initial launch vehicles are spoken for, but already there are listings up on Cars.com if you want to start shopping.
