The Dunlap: Electric vehicle stops in Dunlap on way to record

dunlap

“Members of a crew determined to set five Guinness world records and raise environmental awareness made their way through Dunlap on July 10. The Ride the Future Tour began in Charleston, South Carolina on July 4 and is expected to end in Mountain View, California in mid-August.

An electric car, motorcycle, and scooter plus a group of electric bicycles are being driven or ridden across the country, and the miles traveled would set a record for each vehicle.

Duane Leffel, Nissan executive from Nashville, is driving the electric Leaf and is accompanied by a film crew shooting a documentary on the tour. Leffel and his passengers stopped at a Dunlap restaurant between the scheduled tour stops in Chattanooga and McMinnville.

Filmmakers John Becker, Evan Scott and George Wymenga are recording events for the documentary. The film will “highlight the beauty of the southern America landscape, the big cities and small towns, the amazing people met, and the collective commitment to change for the better.”  Read more here.
