Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC) will unveil the Leaf concept at the Beijing Auto Show. With no connection to the Nissan Leaf, this concept car is distinguished by the absence of the windows and by its "leaf" shaped roof.

The leafy roof is a solar panel which will be able to produce and store electricity, and further more it will be able to orient the solar panels towards the sun. The odd roof can also release oxygen in the atmosphere, similar to a real tree leaf.

The wheels of the Leaf are also used to create electricity: they turn with the wind giving the Leaf yet another power source.
