Customized Nissan LEAF show vehicles inspired by Disney’s ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ revealed at film’s world premiere

Today Nissan unveiled a trio of Nissan LEAF show vehicles, inspired by Disney's 'A Wrinkle in Time' as part of Nissan's collaboration with Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. These one-of-a-kind vehicles, which began as all-new 2018 Nissan LEAFs, use advanced LED technology to create a mesmerizing light show effect similar to the one seen in the upcoming movie, coming to theaters March 9.

"Breakthrough technology is a key part of the storyline in "A Wrinkle in Time' and also a cornerstone of the all-new Nissan LEAF," said Jeremy Tucker, vice president, marketing communications and media, Nissan North America, Inc. "As the halo vehicle for Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the all-new Nissan LEAF uses breakthrough technologies like ProPILOT Assist to help relieve the stresses of highway driving."

The three customized Nissan LEAFs use design elements inspired from the lavish costumes worn by the film's characters: Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey), Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling) and Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon). The LEAFs each feature custom touch-sensitive screens covering the windshield and side windows to create an interactive light show that mimics the "wrinkle" effect from the new movie. Additionally, the show vehicles are outfitted with heat-sensing cameras to track approaching users and react when they draw near.
