Nissan Owner “Leafs” Gas Shortage Behind

Hurricane Sandy swept though the northeast leaving an unprecedented path of
devastation in its wake. The resulting gas shortages left many with no option but to
brave long lines for hours on end to fill up their tanks. But not those driving a Nissan
Leaf, the first modern battery electric car to go on sale in the U.S. Using a Canon 5D and a GoPro camera suctioned to various vehicles, DePalma Productions caught up with one lucky Leaf owner as he drove around his hometown sharing a new appreciation for his environmentally friendly ride. Though filming his travels took us through a few storm-damaged areas lacking electricity, battery-powered LED panels ensured a seamless shoot.
