Reservations for the UK, Netherlands, Republic of Ireland and Portugal markets, for Nissan’s first all electric car will begin in July.

The prices, which include battery, are comparable to that of a diesel or hybrid vehicle.

The five seater Nissan Leaf comes standard with air conditioning, satellite navigation, a parking camera, a quick charge socket and innovative smart-phone connectivity.

Nissan said the reason behind its launch in these four specific European nations was government incentives as well as continued development of car-charging infrastructure.

Nissan Leaf will be available in every major Western European country by the end of 2010.

Nissan is yet to announce reservations for the Leaf, which arrives in Australian showrooms in 2012.
