The Nissan Leaf, it sure is weird. Join me now for a visual tour of its weirdness.

Yep, these are headlights and not a crystalline growth within the Fortress of Solitude.

These are the taillights ... not a boomerang from the Fortress of Solitude.

The antenna has a blue tip. Okey dokey.

The Leaf has a rear diffuser.

The Leaf's spoiler has a solar panel on it. Image how much juice could be produced if they slapped one of these on an Evo.

Finally, the Leaf is most weird for what it lacks: a door that allows you to pour flammable liquid into it.
