Monday night's email from Nissan's Tim Gallagher inviting me to visit the El Toro Marine Base on Wednesday was too good to be true. Nissan was going to have the new autonomous driving car, an electric Nissan LEAF, available to drive. Whoops, I guess "drive" is the wrong word. I'll be riding in it.

 EVs, Suits and Swag
Short Description: 
Maybe it was the number of suits in attendance. Maybe it was the swag, modest as it was. Maybe it was the catered lunch. Sheesh, no one even got arrested. Yep, a number of factors made the launch of Nissan’s nationwide LEAF tour drastically different from earlier occasions uniting Plug In America members over electric cars.
