Renault-Nissan Alliance employees go the distance for COP21

Two hundred employees will promote Renault-Nissan’s leadership in electric vehicles while driving EV shuttles during the global summit on climate change in Paris. Employees – who completed a one-and-a half-day training course to become drivers and EV ambassadors – will shuttle VIP negotiators, delegates and media at the 21st annual Conference of Parties (known as COP21), from Nov. 29 to Dec. 11.


Renault-Nissan Alliance will provide 200 pure electric vehicles for COP21 – the world’s largest electric-vehicle fleet ever to an international conference. The EV fleet – which is comprised of the Nissan LEAF, Renault ZOE and the Nissan e-NV200 – is expected to cover more than 400,000 km in two weeks, fueled with renewable and extremely low-carbon energy, without a single drop of petroleum. Delegates can request an EV shuttle through an online reservation system  specifically developed for the event. Shuttles from Renault-Nissan will run to and from hotels to the conference venue. More than 20,000 U.N. participants from 195 countries are expected to attend the summit.

PARIS (Oct. 26, 2014) - The Renault -Nissan Alliance will provide the world's largest electric-vehicle fleet ever to the United Nation’s COP21 climate conference next month in Paris. As the official passenger-car provider for the climate conference, the Alliance will provide 200 pure electric vehicles to the annual summit, which runs from November 30 to December 11.

In June, the Renault-Nissan Alliance launched a call for volunteers to allow employees in and around Paris the opportunity to be part of COP21 as volunteer drivers. The response was overwhelming, with more than 450 employees applying before the recruitment process was closed. Many of the volunteers drive an EV, and others work directly for Renault and Nissan’s EV programs. Employees selected for the program had to have driver licenses for at least two years, French and English language skills (additional languages preferred), and motivation to promote Renault-Nissan’s EV leadership. Each candidate had to write an essay explaining their interest in the program.
