Nissan stops taking Leaf reservations, has 20,000 on the books

Nissan has accepted 20,000 uncertainties for the Leaf electric car and said it has stopped taking orders until next year.

Nissan began taking reservations for the Leaf in May month.

The Leaf, which is about the range of a Nissan Versa, is powered by an 80-kilowatt electric motor that produces 107 hp and 206 lb-ft of torque. Nissan says the car's pinnacle speed is 90 mph.

The first Leaf deliveries in the United States are set to start in December. The first Leafs will be built in Japan. Nissan is expanding its meeting plant in Smyrna, Tenn., to assemble the Leaf there.
