i appreciate everyone who's responded to this thread...it's been interesting. While I didn't think that the Model S reservation holders were likely, in general, to be interested in the Leaf I thought it would be b/c of the shorter range and smaller size more than anything. But it appears that for many the luxury component is more critical than the EV component...and that does surprise me. For me, I want the best available EV or PHEV that will meet my needs at the earliest date possible. While I'm excited about having a Model S and my first luxury vehicle, I'd choose a comparable EV at $40k even if not a luxury car to save the money and invest it.
