Television superstar and host of the Tonight Show Jay Leno is well-known to be a car enthusiast. In fact he is an ardent fan of electric cars in general. Reuters had a chance to talk with him about his upcoming free concert in Detroit on April 7th, called the Comedy Stimulus Package. The reporter asked Jay about the Volt and shared this material with us here. It is not published anywhere else.
Q: (Reuters) Are you in line to get a Chevy Volt?
A: (Jay Leno) I’m going to go by and drive it and test it. Right now, I’ve got the Equinox, the hydrogen car. It’s not mine but I’ve had it for about a year and I put about six or seven thousand miles on it. I’m kind of a geek and if there’s any problem I write it down in the notebook.
Q: How has the Equinox been?
A: It’s been incredible. The only downside is that it’s about a 20 minute wait for a fill-up, so bring a book. But that’s only because the infrastructure is not here yet so it takes a little longer to fill.
Q: Do you think you’ll be one of the first to test drive a Volt in real-world conditions?
A: I would love to be. I would love to try it. I think it will be great. I think you’ll find that the Volt will be a superior package to the Prius.
