A group of devoted green car drivers celebrated the recent Earth Date by winding a path through the streets of Manhattan creating the outline of a giant “E” pattern.

The “E” design, the brainchild of Danish artist Jacob Fuglsang Mikkelsen, had the drivers taking an hour-long journey that ended in Central Park. The “E” is clearly visible in the GPS tracing map of the artistic trip. In honor of Earth Day, identical “E” art was driven by green vehicles at the same time in seven cities including Santiago, Chile; Dakar, Sengal; Yokohama, Japan; and Bangalore, India.

The green convoy in New York consisted of an electric Nissan Leaf, a 2012 Zero S electric motorcycle, a Via Motors plug-in hybrid Chevy Silverado pickup truck, a 2012 Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid, a Prius C subcompact hatchback, a Prius V mid-size wagon, a Camry Hybrid mid-size sedan, a Highlander Hybrid mid-size crossover utility, a Volkswagen Golf and a man-powered rickshaw.
