Nissan is powering the UEFA Champions League Final by providing 363 Nissan LEAF vehicles and e-NV200 vans to transport officials and visitors to Madrid, creating a mega-fleet that will cover more than 220,000 all-electric kilometers.
Now in its fifth season as Official Automotive Sponsor of the world’s largest annual sporting event, Nissan aims to improve air quality and reduce the environmental impact on the host city during this high-traffic weekend, with the largest zero-emissions fleet in the history of the competition.
This year the Nissan fleet also includes a Nissan LEAF NISMO RC 2.0 race car, which will be used by Brazilian football legend Roberto Carlos as he delivers the UEFA Champions League Trophy from the UEFA Champions Festival in Puerta del Sol to the Estadio Metropolitano.
The final comes as Nissan prepares to begin deliveries of the new LEAF e+ to European customers, introducing a new 62kWh battery with a range of 385km, new personalisation options and equipped with Nissan’s e-Pedal and ProPILOT technologies.
Gareth Dunsmore, Divisional General Manager of Marketing Communications, Connected Car Services, Customer Experience, at Nissan Europe said: “The Champions League Final and Nissan’s electric vehicles are a perfect match because they are both exciting and at the top of their game. We are thrilled to offer attendees the experience of zero emissions transportation on the streets of Madrid, a city that is already at the forefront of the electric vehicle revolution.”
