An All-Electric Vehicle: Up Close and Personal

Come along on a test drive of the Nissan Leaf.

Ever wonder what one of those all-electric cars feels like when you're behind the wheel? Well, here's your chance. We'll start by getting the lowdown on what it means to be a "zero-emission vehicle" from one of the Energy Department's car specialists. We'll kick the tires, check out the funny plugs and then take the baby for a spin through the streets of Washington, D.C.

(A heads-up for folks in the Durham area who want to test drive a Leaf themselves: today's your chance, courtesy of the Durham City-County Sustainability Office. Follow the links for details and sign-up.)
