A brand new Nissan Leaf will be presented to the Office of Community Outreach and Resources (COAR) at the University of Mary Washington (UMW) during the Pohanka Nissan Hyundai Fredericksburg Grand Opening Event. Both COAR and the Nissan Leaf are built on forward thinking and sustainable ideals, which makes this a special presentation.
The presentation of the 2013 Leaf is actually not the first vehicle that Pohanka Nissan Hyundai Fredericksburg has given the university. Tim Pohanka, General Manager of Pohanka Nissan Hyundai Fredericksburg, is a graduate of the University of Mary Washington and proud to offer the Leaf as the sixth vehicle the dealerships have given the university over the last 12 years.
Pohanka Nissan Hyundai Fredericksburg invites the local Press next Thursday, October 24th 4PM – 6PM to cover this very unprecedented event. Nissan couldn’t be more excited to be involved in such a powerful community program like COAR. COAR uses hundred of students, faculty and staff to complete thousands of service hours each year all over Central Virginia.
Due to the high visibility COAR offers, it only makes sense for Pohanka Nissan Hyundai Fredericksburg to present them with a vehicle – and the Nissan Leaf fits the bill. The Nissan Leaf was constructed using a formula of environmental responsibility, sustainability, and innovative technologies to advance society in responsible ways. COAR also uses this formula to serve the community of Fredericksburg and Central Virginia.
Essentially, the Nissan Leaf will allow students and other UMW volunteers to increase the number of community services. The Leaf will be in constant use and member of the university, community, and even the 35,000 alumni will have exposure to the Nissan Leaf.
COAR also works with the K-12 community, giving the Leaf an opportunity to serve as an educational resource. The technology which drives the Leaf will give these students insight in to the environmental and economic impact vehicles have today.
Pohanka Nissan Hyundai Fredericksburg can’t think of a better way to promote the work that COAR offers to the community while simultaneously promoting the best electric vehicle on the market – the Nissan Leaf.
Visit Pohanka Nissan Hyundai Fredericksburg during the Grand Opening on Thursday, October 24th from 4-6pm to see the 2013 Nissan Leaf presentation that will truly help COAR “Drive the Community.”
