On a rainy Saturday afternoon I was able to visit the Georgian College Auto Show. The Auto Show showcases vehicles from different manufacturers; these manufacturers included Honda, Kia, Nissan, Porsche and many more. Many of the volunteers at the different car tents
were Georgian College automotive students. These students were able to answer all of my questions about the cars on display and even posed for some pictures with me!
One car that was particularly interesting was the Nissan Leaf. While approaching the Leaf I noticed there was a plug instead of a tailpipe. The Leaf is 100% electric and produces zero emissions. After a full charge costing roughly 3$, the car is built to go 160km. The Nissan Leaf has received numerous awards such as 2011 World Car of the Year, and it’s the most fuel-efficient vehicle in its class for 2012.
The auto show also had exotic cars on display. I was lucky enough to have the chance to sit in a Corvette and Ferrari. The auto show also had a fire truck and a Police Emergency Vehicles on display. The Georgian College Auto Show allowed people to look at new cars without any sales pressure and speak to knowledgeable people.
