Video of Leafs being loaded to a ship carrier. They pack them pretty tight!

Interesting....Cha-ching times $820 (or is it $850?) if they were coming here...Maybe more if they're going to the UK?

Let's play the game called "What's different with these cars"?

They have dark-tinted rear windows at 1:07, for starters, and there is also a third tailight on the bottom center at 1:38 in the video...

And, of course, the big 'ol front license plate holder...

Fun stuff.....Randy

If those were ICE cars, there would be a lot of CO choking all those employees.

I was going to say I wonder if the zero emission is appreciated by the parking attendents.

Pretty interesting how they secure them through the tow hook on each. They were just gliding silently up the ramp. I only heard the clatter of the metal ramp!

Looks like there's an additional rear brake light mounted in the middle of the multi-fin-thingee (I don't know what to call it) underneath the bumper.

Looks like the UK only gets Leafs in blue and red :-)

Very cool! If someone had shown us a video like that 8 months ago, we would have all had heart attacks.

Nice to see hundreds of LEAFs being loaded on a ship is already passé.

That third light may be a rear fog light, which is required in some locales...
