Nissan convenes Intelligent Motoring Advisory Board as it powers ahead with future of mobility vision
• Industry’s foremost thinkers unite to tackle the ‘connected cities conundrum’
• Brings together technology, transportation, energy and infrastructure sectors
• Industry collaboration designed to advance the Intelligent Mobility debate
Nissan announced the launch of a brand new expert Advisory Board focused on furthering the Intelligent Mobility debate beyond the automotive community in Europe. Convened for the very first time at the Crystal in London, one of the world’s most sustainable buildings, the Intelligent Motoring Advisory Board brought together a cross-section of industry leaders to tackle one of the fundamental issues of our age – the future of mobility and ‘smarter,’ cleaner living.
Led by the Head of Electric Vehicles for Nissan in Europe, Gareth Dunsmore, the Advisory Board was independently chaired by eminent technology and science commentator Stephen Pritchard. Made up of twelve members from across Europe, representing a range of companies and organisations including the European Climate Foundation, Frost & Sullivan and Ecotricity, the Advisory Board will convene twice a year as part of an ongoing partnership and programme of activity.
The inaugural meeting, which took place on 27 April 2016, focused on the topic of smart motoring and the connected city conundrum. Though convened by Nissan, the Advisory Board remains an independent group of experts. Its primary aim is to provide an open space for leaders in their field to share ideas in search of mobility solutions which could change the way we live. This may be electric vehicles today but the group will also explore future possibilities.
Gareth Dunsmore said: “Our desire for increased mobility is greater than ever before, putting a huge strain on the cities and roads of tomorrow. At Nissan, we recognised this five years ago when we launched our 100 percent electric Nissan LEAF. Zero emission motoring is no pipedream. It’s a very real motoring solution to a very real problem. We hope our Advisory Board will set us on course as we go about this business transformation.”
