Nissan leaf makes it from knoxville to Nashville :thumb2:
Family uses car charging stations to travel to Nashville | wbir.comBy Anne Paine, The Tennessean
The Blink fast-charge station for electric cars was on the blink.
Efforts to use the two available plugs yielded nothing for Stephen Smith when he and his family arrived in Lebanon in their Nissan Leaf while traveling Monday from Knoxville to Nashville.
But all was not lost as the Smiths closed in on their destination -- a brother's house only 22 miles farther in Antioch
With 10 miles of available power left on their car, they could take advantage of a slower charger -- also at the Blink station at Cracker Barrel. It took about an hour, but the boost gave enough energy for 30 miles.
