The French get a lot of flak for their seemingly distant ways, but once you get to know them, you experience how warm and loving they can be. Because of this inward show of emotion, French people tend to be more quiet than others and there’s one French village called Provence Alpes Cote d’Azur that is known as “one of the quietest villages Europe.”
To show off the skills of the electric Nissan LEAF, and to celebrate International Noise Awareness Day, Nissan sent the LEAF on a high-speed race in the middle of the night through the streets of that quiet French town.
Also on hand was a team of filmmakers so we can see the stunt for ourselves.
Even after one bang and a smash (trash cans and side mirror), everyone in the town continued sleeping peacefully.
Do you need a little more peace and quiet in your life? Check out the silent ride on the zero-emissions 2014 Nissan LEAF available now at Economy Nissan.
