The Electric Car Driving Experience: Part 2. Overnight Road Trip

With apologies to E. S. Bach and the Library of Congress, 1923.

A week ago, we took the LEAF Plus on a long delayed trip to Indiana, PA.  The reason for the trip was to visit an Indiana University of PA summer archaeological field school near Blairsville.  Their team is chasing down the lost town of Newport, which was established over 200 years ago and had pretensions to being not only a thriving port town on the Conemaugh, but the county seat.   The town included several businesses, a hotel, a post office, and a wharf. By the mid-19th century, it had been largely abandoned.  The other reason for the trip was to figure out how to get an electric car with a 200 mile range to complete a 375 mile trip.  That and getting a sense of how the LEAF would perform on the interstate for an extended period of time.
