Nissan's 'Drive Electric' tour!

Fri Sep 03, 2010 11:44 am

Nissan announces the 'Drive Electric' tour to begin at the Alt Car Expo in Santa Monica on October 1st:

This is the moment you have been waiting for! We're excited to announce the schedule for the “drive electric tour" beginning October 1. In order for you to experience what it is like behind the wheel of the 100% electric Nissan LEAF, you must RSVP on the site to schedule your date and drive time. Note: Not all events can be reserved today, so check and see when the event closest to you will be available for sign-up.
FYI, a note from signing up for my own test drive....I did need to register on this site. It did not, as I think I was half-expecting, pick up my credentials from the Leaf order web site.

Mod Edit :

https://drivenissanleaf.com/About/
The ‘drive electric tour’ will provide the opportunity to learn all about the Nissan LEAF. You will be guided through several display areas, each highlighting a specific attribute or benefit of the car:

- History of electric vehicles and benefits of ownership
- The Nissan LEAF battery system and charging details
- The "sexy science" of the Nissan LEAF and how it compares to other vehicles
- Staying in-touch with your LEAF through your phone or computer
- Fuel efficiency and costs
- Environmental impact
- ...and so much more
- 100 miles is more than enough!

But the best part of the ‘drive electric tour’ is that you can drive the car for yourself! You will be able to drive the car on a pre-determined course with a ‘co-pilot’ to answer your questions and show you all the interior features of the car.

Join us and be one of the first to drive a Nissan LEAF!

March 18-20? We'll have already ordered and be like 3-5 weeks from delivery at that point! We're no better off that you first marketeers! Well, we're better off that these marketeers:

Nashville: March 25 - 27, they'll have already had their LEAFs delivered 1 - 2 months before that!

Dav, did you also have to register separately from your account to order the Leaf?

Yes, it required a new registraion. But it let me use the same password (how kind of them - yet another user id but the same password).

Thanks for that. Glad it wasn't just me. I did spend a few minutes wondering why it wouldn't take my www.nissanusa.com/leaf-electric-car/ user ID and password.

Thanks for the heads-up! I'm registered now for Oct 1 at 11AM :D
And as a bonus I'll attend the Alt Car Expo for the rest of the day. I was there for the first one and of course I really enjoyed it!

BTW this would be a great opportunity to meet other members from this forum at the event, I wonder how we'll recognize each other....
My trip to Mineral King and the value of regen

Charging stations, electrical adapters, and portable CHAdeMO quick chargers

2011 upgrade: Fossil < Leaf. 2014 upgrade: Leaf < imiev. 2017 upgrade: imiev < tesla. Done upgrading.

I'll be there on the 1st too. Don't quite know how you'll be able to identify me yet, but I'll give you a heads-up closer to the date!

I am so sorry folks,

Nissan's web folks and I are trying to get this resolved A.S.A.P. but in the meantime anyone interested in:

NTC Promenade
Sun, 10/17/2010, 5:00 PM

In San Diego, I have accidentally taken this spot. We will work as hard as possible to change my reservation to an opened one but unfortunately this spot is still stuck reserved to me. The good news is I can post on this forum as soon as it's freed so that a forum member can be the first to get it and worse case I'll just jump my reservation around to Texas, Florida, North Carolina and then Washington, D.C. until it get to the right place. Again, I'm sorry for the mix-up. Blame the website though as you should be able to select cancel indefinitely and that's what they're working on. Again, sorry about that folks.
