Nissan Leaf and e-NV200 official UEFA transport

Nissan, the new official global automotive sponsor of the Champions League, is bringing all-electric vehicles to the official UEFA vehicle fleet.

The fleet transported delegates, partners and officials around Monaco as part of the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League group stage draw, held this week.

The Nissan Leaf hatchback and newly launched e-NV200 light commercial van operated as part of the official UEFA shuttle service fleet in Monaco, alongside the Nissan Qashqai and X-Trail crossovers and the Nissan GT-R.

Monaco has one the most comprehensive electric vehicle infrastructures in the world, with more EV charging points per metre2 than any other country or principality on the planet.

"Nissan considers zero-emission vehicles to be the ultimate solution for realising sustainable mobility in the future and is strongly committed to EV technologies," said Jean-Pierre Diernaz, director of electric vehicles - Nissan Europe.

"As the global leader in EV technologies, Nissan is delighted to work with UEFA to provide a zero-emission solution to the shuttle service and will continue to explore opportunities with the organisation to further enhance EV use across all UEFA Champions League activity."

Nissan have taken over the sponsorship of the Champions League from Ford, who were linked to the tournament for 20 years.
