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.
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.
