The Renault-Nissan Alliance started as a strategic partnership between Paris-based Renault and Yokohama, Japan-based Nissan in 1999. Now the Alliance sells one in 10 cars worldwide, making it a driving force in the global automotive industry.
Now the Alliance has become the newest member of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, joining the ranks of over 200 international companies dedicated to fostering and promoting global sustainability across multiple industries.
Renault-Nissan is the undisputed global leader in electric vehicles. The Alliance has sold over 340,000 zero-emissions vehicles since 2010 and its tirelessly innovating engineers are currently developing Autonomous Drive, connectivity and other revolutionary technologies that bring the Alliance closer to its mission of zero-emissions and zero-fatalities.
The Alliance's unwavering dedication to global industrial sustainability is a chief cornerstone of its business, and its leaders know that sustainable decisions help animate innovation. Renault-Nissan is developing the cars of the future, so it is also committed to engineering a better future for the people driving those cars by addressing the most pressing environmental and technological issues of our time.
Peter Bakker, WBCSD's President and CEO, said the automotive sector will play a crucial role in addressing the environmental challenges facing our planet.
"As we move toward the low carbon economy, it's imperative that we have strong and forward thinking leaders in the automobile sector,” Bakker said. “We look forward to working with Renault-Nissan Alliance to deliver the business solutions that will address serious global challenges, and hope they will create new global benchmarks for more sustainable car companies."
You can play a role in the Alliance’s push for a zero-emission future by test driving an electric car today. And if you’re considering an electric vehicle, it makes sense to look to the one that started it all — the Nissan LEAF.
Nissan has been the undisputed leader in consumer, all-electric vehicles (EVs) since 2010 saw the delivery of the first Nissan LEAF — the EV that started it all. Other brands have brought their own EV concerts to market now, but with over 185,000 current LEAF owners worldwide, the Nissan original remains the undisputed consumer favorite.
The new and improved battery powers an exceptionally responsive 80kW AC synchronous motor, which cranks out 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. And unlike combustion engines, all of the LEAF’s torque is available from the second your foot hits the pedal, giving you smooth, consistent acceleration that mimics the feel of the a V6 engine and makes the LEAF fun to drive.
