Renault-Nissan alliance and United Nations partner for zero-emission mobility at summit in Rio de Janerio.


Rio de Janerio. A fleet of electric vehicles from the Renault-Nissan Alliance will shuttle United Nations delegates at its conference in Rio de Janeiro. The conference, which runs from June 13-22, marks the first time the UN will use a dedicated zero-emission car fleet for shuttling its delegates.

More than 50,000 delegates, including 400 from the UN, are expected to attend the summit - nicknamed "Rio+20" - to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the United Nations' Earth Summit in Rio, where countries agreed to a blueprint for economic growth, social equity and environmental protection. "One important subject of Rio+20 is the 'sustainable city,' and zero-emission vehicles can be  an integral part ensuring quality of life in urban areas," said Kathleen Abdalla, Chief of the organisation and logistics of Rio+20 at the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs.

Shuttles throughout the RioCentro convention area include: Renault Fluence Z.E., Renault Kangoo Z.E., and Nissan Leaf.
