The Renault-Nissan Alliance has been named as the official passenger car partner for the United Nation's COP22 Climate Conference in Marrakech, Morocco.
The Renault-Nissan Alliance will provide 50 all-electric vehicles to shuttle delegates, who will be participating in the conference. This is the second time United Nations will use a fleet of electric vehicles at one of its major conferences.
More than 25,000 participants from 195 countries are expected to participate in this annual climate summit from November 7 to 18.
The COP22 electric vehicle fleet will feature Renault ZOE subcompact car, Nissan Leaf compact car and the seven-seater Nissan e-NV200 van.
The electric vehicles will be available 24 hours and seven days a week to shuttle delegates to the key venues of the conference, as a complement to public transportation.
This alliance will also provide a network of more than 20 accelerated and normal charging stations at strategic locations.
The accelerated charging stations can be used to charge the vehicles from 0 to 80 percent in just one hour. The Renault-Nissan alliance was also part of the COP21 summit.
Managing Director of Renault Morocco Group and Alliance COP22 leader, Marc Nassif said, "The Renault-Nissan Alliance is proud to contribute to COP22 by providing a fleet of 50 100 percent electric vehicles."
He added, "This technology, coupled with an increasingly decarbonized electric mix, is the solution for individual mobility to address the issue of global warming and enhance air quality in our cities."
