Delegates at the 2011 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Durban, South Africa (COP17) will be shipped around in a fleet of 100% electric vehicles.

The Renault-Nissan Alliance aims to use the platform to show the success of their respective fleets.
Nissan has sold more than 20,000 LEAFs on three continents, making it one of the most popular EVs in the world. Renault have several models rolling out next year.

Taking place next week, the Conference of Parties aims to “stabilise greenhouse gas concentrations at a level that will prevent dangerous human interference with the climate system.”
