Just like last year, New York Auto Show visitors will have a chance to test drive some of the electric vehicles that are just beginning to hit our roads. The lower pavilion of the Jacob Javits Center has a mini track set up where Nissan’s Leaf, Chevy’s Volt and the Mitsubishi iMiev, are each making their case to be crowned electric king of the road.

The test drives will be available throughout the weekend and next week.
