The Renault-Nissan Alliance will provide 200 all-electric vehicles to the organizers of the United Nations’ COP21 climate conference in Paris from November 30th to December 11th.
It will be the world’s largest-ever EV fleet to an international conference, headlined by models like the Nissan LEAF, Renault ZOE, and Nissan e-NV200. They will serve to drive more than 20,000 participants from Paris to Le Bourget, where the panels and meetings take place – representing a total distance of 400,000 kilometres, the Alliance says.
This will also be the first time the U.N. will use a zero-emission or 100% electric fleet for its entire passenger-car shuttle at a climate summit.
“Electric vehicles are a practical and affordable mode of transportation. At the same time, they offer a solution for drastically reducing tailpipe CO2 emissions. They also reduce regulated exhaust pollutants, helping us to improve the air quality in our cities. Together, the public and private sectors can accelerate the transition to a zero-emission society,” said Carlos Ghosn, Chairman and CEO of the Renault-Nissan Alliance.
