AS the first week of the United Nations’ COP21 climate change conference drew to a close, London mayor
AS the first week of the United Nations’ COP21 climate change conference drew to a close, London mayor Boris Johnson MP took advantage of Nissan’s zero-emissions shuttle service as he left Paris.
Mr Johnson took the opportunity to experience the new 30kWh battery version of the world’s best-selling all electric vehicle — the Nissan Leaf — while being driven from his hotel to the Gare du Nord train station.
The former MP for Henley, who is paving the way for low-emission transport in his home city, was the first politician from around the world to experience the new, longer-range model Leaf.
As the worldwide leader in the development of zero-emissions vehicle technology, the Renault-Nissan Alliance is an official partner of COP21, providing a fleet of 200 all-electric vehicles as the official passenger-car provider for the conference, which has now concluded.
The shuttle vehicles, including the 100 per cent electric Nissan Leaf, represent the world’s largest ever EV fleet at an international conference.
