AS Roma and Nissan join forces to promote electric cars

Nissan will collaborate with famous Italian football club AS Roma in a bid to promote the use of electric cars across Rome and the rest of Italy.

The Japanese company will display its range of electric vehicles at the football club’s Stadio Olimpico home ground, as well as showing off some wares at the team’s training centre.

The football club, which has a global reputation for its on-pitch exploits, will also use a range of Nissan Leaf electric cars and e-NV200 electric vans to transport people, equipment and goods around its training ground.

Bruno Mattucci, managing director of Nissan Italy, said: “We’re proud to launch this agreement on sustainability with AS Roma, further strengthening our involvement in both sport and zero emission mobility. As the worldwide leader in electric mobility Nissan has a strong commitment to tackling climate change and we believe AS Roma is an ideal counterpart to help promote the social and economic advantages of electric mobility.”

Umberto Gandini, CEO of AS Roma, added: “We are proud to work on sustainability with Nissan, a brand with whom we share the same commitment to deliver advanced and innovative products to our customers. This agreement gives us the opportunity to showcase, once again, how our club is committed to both sporting and commercial excellence.”
