The Nissan AutoMobili-D event was recently held at the North American International Auto Show, also called the Detroit Auto Show. AutoMobili-D was an exposition that is dedicated to the global automotive community, including more than 100 companies and environmental groups. The idea was to develop the next generation of automotive designs, and Nissan hopes to be a major part of that process.

Nissan provided keynote addresses, research, and sponsor events. Recently, Nissan sponsored a live-music event that was entirely power by the Nissan LEAF, demonstrating the potential this new vehicle has. In fact, Nissan is now widely considered the pioneer in the electric vehicle movement.

“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to show the LEAF-to-Home system at AutoMobili-D,” said Brian Maragno, director, Nissan EV Sales and Marketing. “Nissan has been a pioneer in ‘Vehicle-to-Home’ technology and a leader in its global adoption and we look forward to exploring the potential of this system, as well as the ‘Vehicle-to-Building’ and ‘Vehicle-to-Grid’ solutions in the very near future.”

Nissan is focusing largely on the LEAF-to-Home system in the US, a system that is more popular overseas. This system lets you use the LEAF to power your home like a conventional generator would, except with zero emissions. This is just one step towards true progress, and Nissan is a key part in it.

Nissan Provides 200 EVs for the COP21 Conference in Paris

Learn more about the 200 EVs provided for the COP21 conference in Paris.

The Nissan EVs provided for the COP21 Conference necessitated the installation of 90 EV charge spots throughout Paris.

Leaders, negotiators, delegates, and media from around the world are gathered in Paris to discuss what we can all do to help combat climate change. This gathering is known as CPO21. To show what the automotive industry can do to help, the Renault-Nissan Alliance provided 200 EVs for the CPO21 conference.

This is the largest group of electric vehicles ever assembled for this type of conference. And, a group of 200 Renault-Nissan Alliance employees volunteered to drive these EVs to act as shuttles for conference attendees.

However, what good are electric cars if you don’t have someplace to charge them? That is why Nissan also installed 90 new EV charge spots around Paris in preparation for the conference.

“COP21 is a call to action to reduce the impact of climate change – including global warming resulting from personal transportation,” said Renault-Nissan Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn, in a statement. “Electric vehicles are the only existing, practical and affordable transportation solution to our planet’s environmental challenges, and they are available today. Expanding the EV infrastructure is mandatory for any city or state that’s serious about environmental stewardship.”

Here at Lancaster Nissan, we are proud to be a part of a global company that is working hard to make our future brighter. And, if you’re interested in making the switch to electric, come check out the Nissan LEAF, available now.
