Nissan will ensure the mobility of the UEFA Champions League Final with a special car. Considering that is the most popular manufacturer in the world, when it comes to electric cars, Nissan decided to supply more than 100 electric vehicles to UEFA and associated sponsors to transport guests and officials during the final weekend.
The company will also transport the iconic UEFA Champions League trophy in a specially designed e-NV200 all electric trophy van to the fan festival at Duomo di Milano on Thursday 26th May where it will remain until the big match. Ahead of the final on Saturday 28th May, a unique Nissan Leaf will then take the trophy to the San Siro stadium as part of the UEFA Trophy Parade.
As a gift to Milan and its surrounding airports, Nissan in partnership with A2A is installing 17 public EV rapid chargers, 13 of which will remain free of charge following the UEFA Champions League Final weekend.
Gareth Dunsmore, Director of Electric Vehicles for Nissan Europe, said: “The final in Milan this weekend marks the climax of another exciting year partnering with the UEFA Champions League – the most prestigious football tournament in the world. We began this journey last season and we were delighted to provide electric vehicles and charging points in Berlin, a journey we look to continue at the final this year in Milan. The great relationship we have with UEFA means we have been able to provide something long lasting and positive to both cities during our first two seasons as a sponsor of the UEFA Champions League.”
