Some interesting videos of the LEAF in GT5. Right hand drive though.

Cool stuff. Glad to see the LEAF included in the GT5 stable.

I wonder if the ultra-light steering is realistically captured for force-feedback steering wheel controllers. :lol:

They get an A for effort from me for using the actual LEAF VSP sound on the exterior views, but you'd never hear that in real life because the VSP sound turns off above 20 mph. They should have just used tire and wind noise.

Question is do they have a Level1 or Level2 charger in the pit? :-) Or do they jack it up and do an ultra-fast battery swap?

That's pretty cool. They even got the power meter to reflect throttle correctly.

I haven't played GT5 in months. Is this part of the latest update to it? I'll fire up the PS3 this weekend to check it out.

Looked like it peaked out at 140kph (~87mph). But in the real world, I doubt that it could hold it's own against MX-5's and/or Mini Coopers ( even the non-S version).

I haven't played it - I was just watching the first posted video and I watched as the driver came into a turn and hit he brakes. It went to full regen :)

Tried it last night for a few, it's part of a $3.99 car package (downloadable content). I normally object to that kind of thing, but I went ahead and got this one... In spite of my natural distaste for the dlc stuff, I can actually kinda see where this one comes from. They clearly spent a great deal of time modeling this thing. The interior, dash, rear seats, etc. are all pretty darned near perfect. the sound... Well, it's accurate, just much louder than the real car is. Still, being the 'right' sound still somewhat helps to recreate the feel.

I haven't played enough to say whether it conveys the feel correctly yet.

Can you "paint" the LEAF different colors? Would LOVE to see some other colors on that baby! Like yellow for example!

It doesn't look like the gas gauge ever goes down.
