Nissan didn’t just build an all-electric vehicle to pander to a small niche of socially responsible consumers. The automaker is serious about helping to create a zero-emission society. Nissan is also dedicated to educating everyone about what EV technology has to offer.

The Nissan  Leaf — the first and only 100-percent electric, zero-emission vehicle available to the mass market — has already arrived in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Tennessee, Texas, Oregon and Washington. According to Nissan Richardson, Nissan is eager to educate more consumers about the technology behind the car. That’s why Nissan has kicked off the Drive Electric Tour, a one-of-a-kind consumer driving experience allowing consumers to learn more about this innovative new car. Additionally, it gives Leaf owners the opportunity to share their experiences with the car with others interested in electric-vehicle technology.
