City od St. Petersburg

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 27 March 2014 in Transportation and Portfolio.

Nissan's "leaf carrier" the City of St. Petersburg sails into the River Tyne at South Shields every few days. She carries the Nissan "Leaf" electric car to Rotterdam for onward shipment to motor dealers all over Europe. Her bulbous prow apparently is designed to reduce wind resistance and save over 800 tonnes of diesel oil every year!
