The show vehicle that has been going around actually works with the actual Nissan Leaf drivetrain! This is the show car, they told me it was governed to 5mph, but it moves. This car is 98% of what the production car would be, most of the changes are just going to be for US regulations. The poor driver who is responsible for moving this car has to put a full seat, floor and steering wheel cover on and then wear white gloves on top of that. The paint on this car has hundreds of man hours invested in wet sanding and polishing. The tires have a special tread pattern on them in the shape of a leaf (not for production).
