Celebrating Earth Day with Nissan’s LEAF
Driving Manhattan in a LEAF is the “Perfect” way to make use of this groundbreaking BEV.
Wayne Gerdes - CleanMPG - April 22, 2012
The 73-mile all-electric range LEAF participated in the “CO2 E Drive” to Times Square for Earth Day 2012 in New York City.
As part of Earth day's activities for 2012, the LEAF took part in a CO2 E Drive through Manhattan along a route that finishes up in Times Square.
The LEAF and other BEV/PHEVs were equipped with a GPS tracking tech while acting virtual paintbrushes with Manhattan serving as the canvas. The vehicles followed a predefined route forming an image of a large letter "E" overlaid on a satellite image of the city. Satellite cameras captured the image and displayed it in the form of colored lights.
Once in Times Square, the LEAF took the stage during a special car runway show highlighting green vehicle attributes, such as zero tailpipe emissions, parts made from recyclable materials, and its range of 73 miles.
Following the show, a designated area in Times Square was available for runway show vehicles, as well as innovators of environmentally responsible technologies, to exhibit for the duration of the event.
LEAF and other BEV/PHEVs draw an E on NY City.
