Nissan LEAF powers marathon across Europe

PARIS – Nissan is partnering with the Electric Marathon by providing a 100% electric Nissan LEAF to each of the six university teams rallying from Tallinn, Estonia, to Monte Carlo. In the 2018 edition, the Nissan LEAF is the only mass-market electric vehicle to compete in its own category.

The format of the marathon has changed compared to the last few years.

“This year, competitions are held in two categories – between universities from six different countries which all use identical new Nissan LEAF 40 kWh, and in the so-called ‘open’ class with an unlimited number of different types of electric vehicles,” said Jüri Tamm, Honorary Consul of the Principality of Monaco and head of the organizing committee. “All EV drivers are welcome to participate. It is possible to participate in the entire marathon, or in each stage separately, and the winners will be awarded with diplomas and medals. The purpose of the marathon is to support environment-friendly transport. The celebratory finish and award ceremony will be held at the square in front of the Prince’s Palace in Monaco on September 29.”
