Kulongoski takes Nissan for a spin

Gov. Ted Kulongoski is in Japan this week meeting with auto industry execs about promoting Oregon as a port of entry for electric cars. Today he announced a partnership with PGE and Nissan, which agreed to provide electric cars for the state's vehicle fleet in 2010. PGE will provide the charging stations (and the power) for the cars.

Nissan posted this video of the governor taking their prototype electric car for a test drive. The governor is promoting electric cars as one solution to reducing CO2 emissions from Oregon's transportation sector.
