Electric Car Fan Takes Aerial Photos of Major Nissan LEAF Shipment

By · April 05, 2011

Anticipation of the delivery of the largest shipment of Nissan LEAFs so far has reached a fever pitch. In fact, “Aries,” a user on MyNissanLeaf.com, arranged to fly in a helicopter over the port in Long Beach to capture images of approximately 1,500 LEAFs being prepared for distribution.

A complete set of aerial images were posted yesterday and now become part of electric car history, as it documents the first major shipment of EVs to the United States.

Thanks to Aries for capturing the photos, and to EVNow for letting us know about them.

Can you spot your Nissan LEAF in the crowd?
