I'm in the News with my LEAF!

Wed Jun 25, 2014 8:17 pm

I attended an EV gathering yesterday at Bergen Community College in NJ and there were a bunch of reporters there.

Watch the Video and read the Story here:

My Car shows up in the Video at around 1:33

I just ordered breakfast at a Bagel shop in my town and the guy behind the counter said he saw me and my car on TV. On the news. I didn't catch that one.

You represented the Leaf and the electric cars VERY well!!

I feel the same way..once you drive an electric car, anything else is far less than second best.

I'm sorry, but the Terrorist angle is just too over the top for me...

71,770 miles/12 bars/256 Gids/59.04 AHr/88% SOH/87.92% Hx 3Mar16 at lease return.

Now driving a 2016 Volt Premier.

It works for a lot of "average" people though.

Welcome to the 'My car was on TV' club!

While all the signage is not my thing, it's obviously effective, so congrats on the attention! Any idea if the reporters were invited, or just showed up?

What Bagel shop?

Always looking for a good Bagel.. Hard to find here in Atlanta..

(We do have 1 Real NY Style Bagel Place) The Guy/Wife who run it are from NJ.

Thanks!, Today I dropped off my LEAF at the Dealer for the 15K mile checkup, and I'm driving an ICE loaner, I'm so depressed.

It's crazy how many people approach my car because of that Terrorist Bumper Sticker / Door Magnet.
At least 50%, 35% for the license plate and the remainder for the shape and EVSE plugged into the front.

Yep. It sure does. I get guys in huge trucks who look down and read it and start laughing and give me thumbs up.

Thanks, They were invited, it was an hour long, we needed 4 EVs and 6 showed up, 2 Tesla S, 3 LEAFs & 1 Honda Fit, There was supposed to be a Brand new i3 but he got a flat on the way over
:(

Bagels & Beans Union NJ, I think a little too far for you.
