Ohio State Takes Electric Cars For A Spin At Smart Columbus Event

For the first time, The Ohio State University on Thursday gave the public a chance to test out electric vehicles for themselves.
Around 250 Ohio State students, faculty and staff pre-registered for the chance to take an electric car out for a spin at the Smart Columbus Ride and Drive Roadshow.

Attendees had 13 electric vehicles to choose from, including the Nissan LEAF and Tesla Model X.

Ohio State Center for Automotive Research senior associate director Maryn Weimer says exposing people to electric vehicles could help them decide to make the switch down the road.
