Nope. It was NOT at a dealer. This was the official Drive Electric tour stop at Philly at the Piazza at Schmidts. They had a static Versa inside the event along with a static LEAF, and a Versa out in the drive area along with the LEAFs. The were not many there when I went, so you could drive a car almost immediately; I drove two different LEAFs through the circuit Saturday afternoon.
This was a complete contrast to the Drive Electric event in the spring at National Harbor in DC where it was all about the LEAF, no Versas at that event, so I can understand (and share) your disbelief after being at an earlier Drive Electric event.
Back to the Versa; I was not a at a dealer that day. As a matter of fact the Nissan dealer I intend to buy my LEAF from (Peruzzi Nissan) was my
audience a month earlier when I drove in with the Hertz rental LEAF. No one there had ever seen a LEAF before, and the building just emptied out as everyone crowded around for their first "up close" look at the LEAF.
I am taken aback that you think I wouldn't know the difference between a Drive Electric event and a Nissan dealer.
