Watch: The Leaf Production Process Is Totally Futuristic

Building an electric car looks way more high-tech than building the old-school kind.


This video, from Nissan, shows various aspects of the production process for the all-electric Leaf, which, instead of an engine, fuel tank, and many other innards associated with cars, has a ton of electronics.

I know even electric cars have their problems, and this production process isn't environmentally benign, but watching this it's hard not to be at least a little impressed with the technological sophistication of this operation. It looks more like building a computer than building a car. It also kind of looks like this Björk video.
