10 Uses For A Silent Nissan LEAF

Driving the LEAF has been such a different kind of driving experience for me. The LEAF has lit my imagination. I recently thought up 10 uses for a silent Nissan LEAF, with more to come.

The LEAF, like every all-electric vehicle, makes almost no sound (beyond the quiet beeping sounds when backing up). Initially, due to the silence, I started considering a career shift. Maneuvering in such a noiseless fashion, like a Native American scout silently taking information, clandestinely gathering knowledge in concealment.

033 copyWithin a week of driving the LEAF, I thought (entertainingly) I might become a private investigator. Sure, now I can get in and out of tricky situations with the LEAF, adeptly and silently.

Carrying that thought on, here’s a list for anyone else considering a new path in life, using the LEAF or another fully electric vehicle:

  1. Private Eye / Private Investigator
  2. Secret environmental field research agent; Greenpeace Investigator
  3. Undercover Cop
  4. Paparazzi
  5. Guardian Angel
  6. News photographer wanting to get an inside story
  7. Operative
  8. Business Spy
  9. Underground Taxi Service — serving those who want to avoid the press, the law, the in-laws, the
    “crowd.”
  10. Mom or Dad wanting to spy on their teenage children

Hmm, another idea just hit me, perhaps Solar Man will hire me.
