January 11, 2010 - Nissan will bring its new electric car, The Nissan LEAF, to Knoxville next week as part of its 22-city Nissan Leaf Zero Emission Tour.

On Friday, January 15, at World’s Fair Park there will be a press event from 8 a.m. - 9 a.m. and the car will be on public display from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m.

Bill Lyons, the city’s senior director of Policy & Communications and Tracy Wodard, director of government affairs for Nissan will be among the speakers.

Knoxville is one of the first test markets where the Nissan LEAF will initially be sold in the United States beginning in December of 2010.

Tennessee will also be home to part of the network of about 2,500 charging stations that are being established for the new car.

A prototype of the Nissan LEAF will be on display at Friday’s event.

There will also be a Nissan Versa with The LEAF’s electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack available for drives with members of the media.
