Move aligns with the brand’s long-term goals for carbon neutrality.
Calling for cross-industry collaboration to build a more sustainable future, Nissan recently highlighted the importance of electrification in the development of a cleaner, greener, and more connected world at an Expo thought leadership event.
Marco Fioravanti, Vice President, Product Planning in Africa, Middle East, India, Europe, and Oceania, Nissan Motor Corporation, was a featured speaker at the Age of Disruption – How Tech Innovation is Shaping Our New Normal event, which formed part of the Travel & Connectivity themed week and highlighted the unique ways technology can drastically improve the world.
“The mobility of tomorrow is going to be dramatically different than what we know today. If you look at the car as a commodity, not a lot has changed since its invention. It still has four wheels, a steering wheel and is powered by an engine,” stressed Fiorovanti.
Bringing together industry leaders, expert researchers and disruptive innovators, the unique event covered a variety of topics, including smart and sustainable mobility solutions for the future while highlighting the role of AI (artificial intelligence) in the progression of mobility and urban living. As the Official Automotive Partner of Expo 2020 Dubai, Nissan’s participation at the world fair has seen it launch two new vehicles in addition to conducting the first regional showcase of the Ariya, the brand’s first fully electric crossover.
