Renault-Nissan Alliance again released a press note boasting that it will provide 200 electric cars for the United Nation's COP21 climate conference in Paris.

Renault ZOE, Nissan LEAF and Nissan e-NV200 will be used from Nov. 30 to Dec. 11 covering more than 400,000 km (250,000 miles). Additionally 90 charging points (fast and standard) will be installed.

"The vehicles will be available to shuttle delegates 24 hours, seven days a week to and from the Le Bourget conference venue, as a complement to public transportation."

However, our attention was drawn to the new number of more than 274,000 EVs sold by Renault-Nissan Alliance.

The Renault-Nissan Alliance is the largest EV manufacturer among automotive groups and notes highest share among all-electric cars (they are not offering any plug-in hybrids yet):

"The Alliance has sold more than 274,000 electric vehicles around the world, accounting for half of all EVs on the road since its first electric vehicle Nissan LEAF went on sale in late 2010."
