The "E" tag Performance that was done in the streets of New York City, screened on the Toshiba jumbo screen on Times Square (above photo from 2011 version). Once the route was completed, the cars ended up on Times Square for a "Green Car Fashion Show" in collaboration with Mr. Green.
First to enter the Blue Catwalk was the Nissan LEAF, tightly escorted by Mr. Green
The whole performance was also screened on the huge NASDAQ screen. The screen measures 12,000 square feet and uses more than 18 million LEDs on a display with a top resolution of 1280x1824. Read more about the screen in this WIRED article.
