Nissan Teams Up With AS Roma To Promote Zero-Emission Mobility

While five automakers have joined their forces to create a wide network of ultra-fast, high-power charging stations, Nissan is currently promoting its electric vehicles in a different way.

The Japanese automaker has signed an agreement with Italian soccer/football club AS Roma, which is supposed to encourage EVs in the country’s capital.

We are proud to work on sustainability with Nissan, a brand with whom we share the same commitment to deliver advanced and innovative products to our customers, in our respective fields. This agreement gives us the opportunity to showcase, once again, how our club is committed to both sporting and commercial excellence“, commented Umberto Gandini, the AS Roma CEO.

Over the duration of the arrangement, the car company will promote its electric vehicles at the club’s Olimpico stadium and the Trigoria Training Center. At the arena, Nissan will showcase a Leaf, while the seven-seater e-NV200 Evalia will be used as shuttle bus, and in Trigoria, another Leaf and Combi e-NV-200 vehicles will help transport people and goods.

In the meantime, Nissan is reportedly planning to introduce a successor of the current Leaf, sometime in 2018. It’s expected to get a new design and, in order to remain competitive in the EV segment, an increased driving range, which should be up to 340 miles (~550 km).
