The world's first Nissan Leaf was delivered on Saturday in a ceremony at San Francisco's City Hall, as the promised December U.S. deliveries of the electric car brand shipped out as promised. In a new twist on BOGO (Buy One, Get Online!), the second owner to claim a Leaf also received his own video (after the jump).
Here's Nissan customer Thomas Franklin, extolling the virtues of his new Leaf in not one but two videos:
A full nationwide launch of the model is slated for 2012, Engadget notes, adding that "Hawaii and Texas will be the next locales to join the fun early in 2011 and reservations will be reopened soon thereafter." It's not all good news, however; "Sadly, some 'additional markets' are expected to be pushed into the latter half of the year."
GM responded with the video updating the status of shipments of the Chevy Volt, with a statement from global electric vehicles head Doug Parks: "coming soon."
