Nissan Leaf test drive

Hi everyone!

I went to Chicago yesteday to test drive a Nissan Leaf!

It was a pretty cool event. I actually got behind the wheel. It wasn't a long driving course, but it was beautiful weather for an outdoor event, and they let me take lots of photos and video.

I'll get some video up tomorrow, but you can check out my blog entry right now if you want.
Nissan Test Drive – Chicago

I also saw the EV charging stations at Soldier Field.

You can see the photos I took at: MobileMe Gallery

And since I was in Chicago, I stopped by the Tesla store as well!

It was a fun day, but WAY too much driving!

Here's the main test drive video:
