Nissan is promoting their new electric car in many ways and one is the Drive Electric Tour events. Has anybody gone to one of these? There are a total of 23 events where consumers can test drive the Leaf and learn a lot about it.
You first sign in and get a yellow wrist band and then when your group is up you can start the tour thru a few enclosed structure where a tour guide shows you some of the technology of the car.
After these exhibits you can go on a test drive, and after that there is at least 1 car opened up so that you can mess with the controls and computer all you want (and look under the hood all you want as well!).
The car is a lot of fun to drive! Tons of torque at low speeds.
What many people don't know is that you also can have the chance to win a Leaf. You make a 30 second movie on why you deserve to get the leaf and then Nissan posts this on their website. The person who recorded their video has to get others to vote on their video, and the person with the most number of votes wins an electric car!
Here is the link to the events thru December, I think you have to register and log in to see all the events, which go thru the end of March.
Also, could you look at my video and vote if you want to? I really want a go at winning this
