Renault-Nissan said it will supply a fleet of 200 electric vehicles to United Nation’s Conference of Parties climate conference in Paris later this year.   The fleet, which will be comprised of Renault Zoe subcompacts, Nissan Leaf compact vehicles, and Nissan e-NV200 seven-passenger vans, will be the largest ever electric-vehicle fleet ever provided to an international conference.

This will mark the first time that the United Nations will have a completely zero emissions fleet at a climate summit. The vehicles will be available to delegates non-stop throughout the event for transportation to and from the conference venue.

The Renault-Nissan Alliance said it expects the fleet to drive approximately 248,000 miles or 400,000 kilometers during the event, known as COP21, while emitting zero emissions while on the road.

The summit will take place from November 30 to December 11, 2015. Renault-Nissan is providing a team of professional drivers augmented by 200 Renult and Nissan employees. More than 20,000 U.N. participants from almost 200 countries are expected to be in attendance.
