Nissan Leaf hits the road
DETROIT--The auto industry really is serious about electrification, as evidenced by the "ride and drive" event this week at the Business of Plugging In conference here. People took turns getting a ride in electric cars designed for everyday use, including the Nissan Leaf, pictured here. The Leaf had a long line of drivers eager to get in, as did the Volt and, of course, the Tesla Roadster. With all these well-known EVs around, it was sort of like being at the Oscars and seeing stars walking about.
Driving the Leaf was very enjoyable and comfortable. It very much felt like a normal car. More details on the Nissan Leaf, which will be available in December, are available here.
