City of St. Petersburg | The evolution of the cargo ship

Nissan has taken the same innovative spirit and ingenuity that produced the Nissan LEAF™, the world’s first mass-produced 100% electric car, and built a cargo vessel christened "The City of St. Petersburg". This 21,000 ton car-carrier can transport up to 2,000 vehicles at a time.

Nissan's commitment to the planet doesn't begin and end with efficient cars. The company saw an opportunity to extend its environmentally conscious philosophy into the transport and delivery aspect of the business, and so "The City of St. Petersburg" was born.

The wave of the future

Manned by a crew of 24 and travelling at an average speed of about 17 knots (~20 mph), The City of St. Petersburg will ply the seas of the windy North Atlantic, delivering Nissan vehicles to Northern Europe and Russia from factories in the United Kingdom and Spain.
