18 Tons Of CO2 Not Emitted, 108,000 Miles Driven Without Oil Thanks To Renault-Nissan Alliance At COP21

Originally published on EV Obsession. covered the support of the Renault-Nissan Alliance with EV Shuttle At COP21 (Videos). Well, here you have some math thanks to this support — the fleet of 200 electric vehicles saved 18 tons of CO2 from being emitted into the air during two-week global summit! Think of what we take in our lungs regularly due to diesel fumes.

Think of how those EV numbers also ease air pollutions for the driver, pedestrian, and bicyclists. There is something purely different about the air around an all-electric vehicle. The fleet was the largest EV fleet ever provided for an international conference — in the world.

As noted, Renault and Nissan’s employees volunteered as drivers for the fleet. Comprised of such lightly smooth movers, the EVs driven were the Renault ZOE, Nissan LEAF, and Nissan e-NV200. on their Zero-Emission Cars: In Paris, electric vehicles from the Renault-Nissan Alliance shuttled more than 8,000 VIP delegates, media, and negotiators. Their combined travel was at least 108,000 miles (175,000 kms) during the Paris climate talks. That is 108,000 miles without smogging the air, without emitting any CO2 tailpipe emissions, and without using any petroleum whatsoever. And the Serenity, the absolute Quiet of EV transport.

This year’s COP21 marked the first time the U.N. used a 100-percent electric fleet. Every single passenger-car shuttle at a climate summit was pure electric.

 COP21 also resulted in the Paris Declaration on Electro-Mobility and Climate Change Call for Action, an agreement that aims to increase EVs and their charging infrastructure. The Renault-Nissan Alliance signed the action plan, which aims to keep the transport sector in line with the COP21 promise to reduce the impact of climate change.

During the two-week United Nations annual climate change conference in Paris, Renault-Nissan showed some beautiful math due to easy transportation with Zero-Emissions while driving their cleaner fleet of EVs. Why only have two weeks? That’s what they aim to change.

Think of what that saved for only two weeks — What is the math of what we emit 24/7 with only 1 percent of the population driving all-electric vehicles? Of course, that is largely what the COP21 is endeavoring to change. The math of climate change, dirty-oil, EVs, and renewable energy.

Look for thirteen or fourteen of the new charging spots to remain after the climate change conference and be available for public use. Two at Charles de Gaulle Airport, two on the Paris périphérique highway and one at Orly Airport. We previously covered news on At COP21 In Paris, Renault-Nissan Partner To Install 90 New EV Charging Spots.


Or This — And Remember Smog Goes From The Air Into Your Lungs.
