Plug in vehicles at 2011 Denver Auto Show Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Thousands of people attended the 2011 Denver Auto Show.
  • 2. Although most came to see gasoline cars, many stopped by to see some of the electric cars at the DenverAuto Show, including this silver Nissan LEAF.
  • 3. Quite a few not familiar with all-electric cars were dumbfounded by the LEAF’s electric motor.
  • 4. No other cars at the show could compete with the LEAF’s annual estimated fueling costs of $561.
  • 5. Technically, the Nissan LEAF isn’t Zero Emission – but neither is your refrigerator.
  • 6. The LEAF drew many long looks and sparked many questions from Denver Auto Show goers.
  • 7. The LEAF offers multiple charge options, as this dual charging port illustrates.
  • 8. I’d never seen a Nissan LEAF before, much less sat behind the wheel of one 
  • 9. The kids fit easily into the back of the LEAF.
  • 10. It’s not a big panel, but a little solar is better than nothing!
  • 11. Nissan is hoping that by getting the LEAF out early it will draw people away from other automakers (it’sdrawing us away from Honda!)
  • 12. My daughter contemplates whether she likes the Nissan LEAF, as she sits behind the wheel …
  • 13. And she decides, yes, a big thumbs up for the LEAF!
  • 14. Toyota also had a plug-in on display, the plug-in Prius.
  • 15. While the plug-in Prius didn’t seem to draw as many people as the LEAF or the Chevy Volt, it caught theattention of many, including these two men.
  • 16. Will all Priuses be plug-ins in a few years?
  • 17. If you look closely, you can see a big Ford pick-up truck through the window of this Prius plug-in hybrid.
  • 18. GM had four Chevy Volts on hand for the Denver Auto Show, including this one on a revolving stage.
  • 19. A salesperson works to get the crowd excited about the plug-in hybrid electric Chevy Volt.
  • 20. You had to wait in line to get a chance to sit in this Chevy Volt, which drew a big crowd.
  • 21. Yup, I waited  -- and later I got to test drive a Volt outside the Colorado Convention Center.
  • 22. There were no lines to test drive any of these GM cars.
  • 23. Because everyone wanted to drive a Volt – but first they had to drive another GM model!
  • 24. What will the dominant type of vehicle and fuel(s) be when my daughters start driving in 10 years?
