Production delays for Nissan Leaf

There is bad news for thousands of customers waiting to get behind the wheel of the all-electric Nissan Leaf.

Nissan says it is months behind in delivering the new car due to longer-than-expected production time.

The 20,000 customers who pre-ordered the $33,000 plug-in vehicle may have to wait until May or June instead of getting one this month or next.

In the meantime, General Motors says wait times for their electric Chevy Volt is still running two to four months as expected.
