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. We'd recommend that you schedule a drive ASAP, but the choice is certainly yours.

Nissan's Drive Electric Tour kicks off on October 1 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 breakthrough electric vehicle. The Drive Electric Tour starts with a stop at the AltCar Expo in Santa Monica, CA. 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. The tour concludes in Nashville, TN near the end of March. Tour dates and locations are posted on the Drive Nissan Leaf site. If this sounds like a must-attend event, hit up the site, schedule your drive and then patiently wait for your chance to pilot the "game-changing" Nissan Leaf. Hat tip to Michael!
