Nissan will soon resume taking U.S. reservations for its Leaf electric car.

Nissan Americas Chairman Carlos Tavares said Wednesday that Nissan would reopen its reservation system May 1. Nissan stopped taking U.S. reservations for the Leaf last September when it reached 20,000 reservations.

Reservations will first reopen in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas and Washington. People who have signed up on Nissan's Leaf Web site will get first dibs on reservations, which are held with a $99 fee.

Tavares said all of Nissan's Japanese plants are now open and the company expects to accelerate Leaf production and development in the coming weeks. He said a shipment of 127 Leafs is due to arrive in the U.S. next week.
