2018 Nissan LEAF

2018 Nissan LEAF

Want to test drive a 2018 Nissan LEAF? Starting this October, the new LEAF will be on tour and you'll be able to actually drive it before you perhaps buy it.

That is something that can't really be said of the Tesla Model 3, which is sold more sight-unseen.

In addition, Nissan states the following:

Time is at a premium for today's consumers, and test-driving vehicles isn't always easy to fit into a busy schedule. To help alleviate this concern, Nissan is launching its 2018 LEAF Drive and Discover program, a concierge test drive program that allows consumers to experience the all-new Nissan LEAF at their convenience via an appointment-based delivery platform in select cities.

Nissan kicks off the program in each city by hosting consumer events with the all-new LEAF on display along with branded giveaways for visitors. Guests will be able to talk with Nissan product specialists and schedule their LEAF test drive while visiting the display space.

Upon appointment day, a Nissan product specialist will deliver the all-new LEAF directly to consumers and provide a detailed walk-around of the new LEAF. The Nissan representative will also accompany the test drive, answering questions along the way.

You can sign up for the events at this link https://allnewleafdrive.com/

Brian Maragno, director, Nissan EV Marketing and Sales Strategy, commented:

"Even though schedules are exceedingly busy these days, we wanted to make it is easy for people to experience the all-new Nissan LEAF."

"Delivering the all-new LEAF directly to a consumer's desired location allows them to experience it precisely when and where their schedule allows."
