Based in France, Lionel Suissa is one of a group of artists promoting electric vehicles; bringing the pleasure of electric driving to a younger audience. Lionel and his team are about to lead a 35 day tour across Mainland Europe in a Nissan e-NV200 electric van.
Starting the challenge in Barcelona and travelling along Europe’s Electric Corridor, the team will end the tour in Norway’s picturesque North Cape. While passing through France, the Electrip team will be traversing Wattway, the solar powered road located near Le Mans.
Lionel, part of the Electrip team said:
“As a passionate advocate of the role EVs can play in improving air quality, I think it’s crucial that the younger generation see just how easy and enjoyable electric driving can be. Electrip is designed to show off Europe’s charging network and demonstrate to people just how capable an electric vehicle truly is. The Nissan e-NV200 is the ideal vehicle for our European adventure.”
Lionel will be piloting a Nissan e-NV200 van, capable of 106miles (NEDC) on a single charge. The electrip team will be making the most of the growing European network of over 4,000 charging sites.
The electric road trip supports Electrify the World, a new digital community platform. Through the brand’s network of social media sites and websites, Nissan is using its expertise from almost a decade in electric vehicles to inspire new conversations about sustainability and cleaner living.
The platform also gives users a forum to engage in discussion, interact with the brand and offer opinion. It aims to engage audiences across Europe and inspire them to join Nissan’s electric revolution, living smarter and more sustainable lifestyles.
