UEFA Champions League selects 100% electric vehicles as official transport
Nissan has supplied the all-electric Nissan LEAF hatchback and newly launched e-NV200 light commercial van as part of the official UEFA shuttle service fleet for delegates, partners and officials in Monaco, alongside the Nissan Qashqai and X-Trail crossovers and the high-performance Nissan GT-R.
As the annual host of EVER, the Ecological Vehicle and Renewable Energies conference, Monaco has been at the forefront of promoting electric vehicle use and has 287 charging points at 24 locations around the principality, on average one for approximately every 400 metres. This includes two quick chargers, located next to the Grimaldi Forum where the draw is taking place.
‘Nissan considers zero-emission vehicles to be the ultimate solution for realising sustainable mobility in the future and is strongly committed to EV technologies,’ said Jean-Pierre Diernaz, director of electric vehicles at Nissan Europe.
‘As the global leader in EV technologies, Nissan is delighted to work with UEFA to provide a zero-emission solution to the shuttle service and will continue to explore opportunities with the organisation to further enhance EV use across all UEFA Champions League activity.’
