Renault-Nissan Alliance to provide fleet of 50 EVs for COP22

The Renault-Nissan Alliance is to provide a fleet of 50 electric vehicles to the Conference of Parties COP22 in Marrakech.

Renault ZOE electric vehicle

The COP22 fleet will feature the Renault ZOE and Nissan LEAF plus the seven-seat Nissan e-NV200 van

Taking place 7-18 November, the annual climate summit will have a fleet of Renault ZOE models as well as Nissan LEAFs and e-NV200s to shuttle delegates to key venues at the conference, as a complement to public transportation.

The Alliance will also provide a network of more than 20 accelerated and standard charging stations at strategic locations. The accelerated charging stations will be able to charge the EVs from 0 to 80% in about one hour.

The move marks the second time the United Nations will use a zero-emission shuttle fleet in support of public transport at one of its major conferences. The Alliance was also an official partner of COP21 and provided a fleet of 200 electric vehicles, which shuttled more than 8,000 delegates, media and negotiators during the two-week United Nations annual climate change conference in Paris last year.
