I don't know what color Leafs the dealers are bringing. How about a picture of yours to add to this update gallery?
Below are a few of the Albany Capital District EV Driver's Group cars that are coming to this event to date. Well, at least the ones I have picture of so far. :)

I charged up at the RPI Fieldhouse ChargePoint station last week and saw this beautiful blue Leaf with CA plates on it. Anyone know who's Leaf this is? I want to invite them to our group and to our National Plug-in Day event on the 29th.

Also, there will be two electric motorcycles coming to the event, so I'm bringing my helmet! :mrgreen:

I'm one of the motorcycles - the ZEV, if the weather allows. What is the other bike? BTW, Facebook is cracking down on people who erase their cookies, and I can't for the life of me remember what birthday I use for my FB non de plume...

Oh I see now. The other bike is this one:

It was built by Carl Vogel, who is coming up from Babylon to show it.

Interesting bike. Is that four or eight 12 volt batteries?

Here's an update on the upcoming Capital District EV Driver's Group event at Guptill's on the 29th.

The event link is here: National Plug-in Day EV car event

Image

Electric Vehicles registered so far:

6 Nissan LEAF
3 Honda Fit EV
3 Smart ForTwo Electric Drive
2 Tesla Model S
2 Chevrolet Volt
1 Mitsubishi i
1 Ford Fusion Energi
1 Honda Accord Plug-In
1 Ford Focus Electric
1 Harley Davidson EV conversion motorcycle

New things are coming together every day now. Now we're going to have electric RC cars races as well. We have mini orange pylons to set up a course. We'll have EV music playing, ice cream, EV test drives, and EV parade, and group photo shoot. I have solar equipment venders coming, and charging station vender displays as well.

Heck, it's not out of the question that we'll have some "Electric Slide" line dancing going on too. :)
