14 November 2019, Dubai UAE: Nissan Middle East is showcasing at Dubai International Motor Show this year the brand’s unique concept of ‘Nissan Energy Share’, the company’s approach to changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society to drive awareness around sustainable living in the near future.
At a dedicated ‘Energy Sharing Corner’ built on Nissan’s stand at the show, the brand is showcasing its expertise used from almost a decade in electric vehicles to inspire conversations about sustainability. Through quick and fun feet tapping on Nissan’s colourful electric energy-sharing pads, visitors have the opportunity to produce energy as a currency to pay for their cup of freshly brewed cappuccino or hot-chocolate prepared at a barista station that runs purely off the iconic Nissan LEAF – the world’s best-selling electric car. As an extra taste, participants could opt to have their photo, taken at the station, or select one of the many Nissan images, on their beverage.
The brand highlights that the goal of this cutting-edge technology is to allow owners of Nissan’s electric vehicles to be able to easily connect their cars with energy systems and charge their batteries, power homes and businesses or feed energy back to power grids.
Thierry Sabbagh, Managing Director of Nissan Middle East, said: “Electric vehicles are just one element of Nissan’s vision. Our ‘Energy Sharing Corner’ is the perfect way to showcase to customers how we can potentially revolutionise the way in which we generate and utilise energy. We want customers to experience the electric lifestyle for themselves and see that future living involves using their electric cars for much more than just driving – they can be used in nearly every aspect of their lives. Our Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision calls for changing how cars are integrated with society, and Nissan Energy turns that vision into reality.”
Nissan’s stand (SS105) is located in the Sheikh Saeed Hall, Dubai World Trade Centre.
