Mark your calendars, dust off your driving shoes, practice your electric car speak and get ready to pilot the world's first mass-produced, battery-powered family vehicle of the modern age. The Nissan Leaf is headed your way and test drives are coming to an area near you.

Nissan's Drive Electric Tour, sponsored by the 100 percent electric Leaf, kicks off on October 1st and the company has revealed tour dates, locations and has provided a nifty button on its website which allows you to schedule a test drive of its new EV. The Drive Electric Tour kicks off with a stop at the AltCar Expo in Santa Monica, CA, and for the first leg of the tour, the Leaf will travel along our nation's west coast. By December, the Leaf will make its way across the southern portion of the U.S., eventually concluding in Nashville, TN near the end of March. Tour dates and locations are posted on the Drive Nissan Leaf site. Hit up the site, schedule your drive and patiently wait for your chance to pilot the "game-changing" Nissan Leaf. Hat tip to Michael!
