Expo Dubai, Nissan turning a green Leaf

DubaiExpo 2020 Dubai is joining forces with leading vehicle manufacturer Nissan to demonstrate and showcase the future of intelligent mobility – starting with a fleet that includes electric vehicles. 

The Japanese firm was revealed yesterday as Expo 2020 Dubai’s latest Official Premier Partner at an event held at the Expo site, where Nissan also unveiled the second generation of its electric car, the Nissan LEAF, for the first time in the Middle East. 

As Expo 2020’s Official Automotive Partner, Nissan will provide the Expo 2020 fleet, including electric vehicles and next generation cars featuring advanced technologies. Expo 2020 will be the first major organisation in the Middle East to use the Nissan Leaf, which is already the world’s best selling electric car. Learnings from the partnership will help accelerate the electrification of mobility in the region. Nissan Intelligent Mobility technology will also be extensively showcased at the mega-event taking place in 2020.

The deal was signed by Reem Al Hashimy, UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation and Director General, Dubai Expo 2020 Bureau, and Kalyana Sivagnanam, President for Middle East and Regional Vice President for Africa, Middle East and India at Nissan.

Reem Al Hashimy, said: “World Expos celebrate human ingenuity. We’re seeing that ingenuity making mobility more intelligent and more sustainable through electric vehicle technologies. 

Kalyana Sivagnanam said: “The new, zero-emission Nissan LEAF embodies ‘Nissan Intelligent Mobility’ – our approach to changing the way cars are driven, powered and integrated into society. Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility vision also ties into the UAE government’s ambition to reduce carbon emissions and promote the growth of electric vehicles across the nation.”

Nissan also showcased a premiere video of its BladeGlider electric concept car that will be exhibited at the Nissan booth at Dubai Motorshow, taking place from November 14-18, 2017 at Dubai World Trade Centre. The video will be released on November 13, 2017.
