The Making of Nissan LEAF the new car - video - time 4:19

Fri Oct 22, 2010 5:51 am

This video shows us the designing and testing of the first LEAFs. It has English subtitles. Then it shows the unveiling of the Nissan LEAF to the world. There is also a segment showing the production. It seems that a human is rarely involved in its assembly. The final segment shows test drives - by shareholders and others.

To resurrect an ancient thread, I'd never seen the above video before :shock: :oops: until I stumbled across an identical video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RURuinqAuw on the Nissan Newsroom channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/NissanNewsroom/featured) in the Electric section. I guess nobody else did either because it doesn't have even 130 views despite being uploaded Oct 25, 2010.

Title is only "Making en" and there's no description nor a mention of Leaf.

'13 Leaf SV w/premium package (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)
'06 Prius

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.
