The Prince’s Palace of Monaco has taken delivery of two all-electric, zero emission Nissan e-NV200s, marking an important step in the Palace’s commitment to reducing its environmental impact.
Received by the Sovereign Prince of Monaco, H.S.H. Prince Albert II at a handover ceremony held at the Palace, the two e-NV200 five-seater Evalia vans will be used primarily as on-site delivery vehicles, transporting a variety of goods as well as people across the historic estate, which is home to the Prince and his family.
Offering true zero-emission mobility, the e-NV200s will contribute to the Palace’s strategy to reduce the estate’s greenhouse gas emissions as part of a wider sustainability action plan implemented in Monaco by the Prince.
Commenting on the country’s sustainability strategy and the addition of the e-NV200s to the Palace’s vehicle fleet, Prince Albert said: “Reducing our greenhouse gas emissions is vital and our country has set ambitious targets. Our aim is to achieve a 50 percent decrease in carbon emissions by 2030, with the ultimate goal of being carbon neutral by 2050.”
Paul Willcox, Chairman, Nissan Europe said: “As a society we face considerable environmental challenges but with zero tailpipe emissions, electric vehicles offer a solution that can help tackle these challenges head on.”
“With the introduction of the Nissan LEAF and e-NV200, we have spearheaded the move towards smarter, greener mobility and we’re delighted that governments and leaders across Europe are switching on to the benefits of all-electric motoring.”
Combining the best elements of two multi-award winning vehicles – Nissan LEAF and Nissan NV200 – the all-electric e-NV200 is a practical, versatile and sustainable commercial vehicle. Boasting a range of up to 170 kilometres on a single charge*, the Nissan e-NV200 has class-leading load space capable of carrying people or goods while producing neither exhaust emissions nor noise pollution.
Nissan was the first manufacturer to bring zero emission mobility to the mass-market with the introduction of the 100 percent electric Nissan LEAF in 2010. The Nissan LEAF is the world’s best-selling electric vehicle and together with the Nissan e-NV200, there are more than 220,000 Nissan electric vehicles on the roads, globally.
