Renault-Nissan’s strong presence at the United Nation COP21 (200 EVs and 90 charging points) and the recent Diesel Gate scandal suggests that the automotive industry might be headed towards a permanent change..

It will be interesting to see which path the various automakers choose and what will be the impact over the next 5-10 years.

“As the official passenger-car provider for the United Nation’s COP21 climate conference in Paris, the Alliance will provide 200 pure electric vehicles to the annual summit which runs from Nov. 30 to Dec. 11. This represents the world’s largest electric-vehicle fleet ever to an international conference. A network of 90 charge spots has been set up to charge the vehicles using low-carbon electricity provided by French energy supplier EDF.”

    I like it. Renault Nissan is really pushing EVs. 280.000 sold cars is a statement. I hope we will see 1 Million Renault-Nissan cars within the next 3-5 years.

  2. Nissan has an unprecedented opportunity to capitalize on hundreds of thousands of goodwill ambassadors for the brand.

    I’ve never seen any other type of car engender the kind of enthusiasm EVs do.

    The open question is what will they do with this fifth column?

  3. Alex says:

    Renault-Nissan is the best, love my Leaf.

  4. Anon says:

    Wish the new, bigger Leaf battery was backward compatible. 🙁

    Other than that, keep up the great work, looking forward to a longer range, less fugly Leaf Gen2.

    1. Dave K. says:

      You said it, I too love my Leaf but not making the larger battery backward compatible is a poke in the eye to us early adopters.

    Not mentioned here but I believe it is interesting is that Europcar(major EU car rental company) have heavily invested in EV’s.
    They have had Ions and Leaf as far as 4 years ago, but now they(we since I work for them, and proudly promote ev’s) have 100+ Leafs in UK fleet and Model S on continenent. We are also getting Zoe’s now in UK. Quite proud if this I am. How about article about this?
