Nissan introduces 100 Resilient Cities

To support the policy environment and planning needed to integrate these technologies into the world’s cities, Nissan announced a new partnership with 100 Resilient Cities, Pioneered by The Rockefeller Foundation (100RC). 100RC is a global non-profit working to help cities build resilience to physical, social, and economic challenges. Together, Nissan and 100RC will help cities lay the groundwork for autonomous drive, electric vehicles, and new mobility services. As Nissan takes steps to build the car of the future – and the car company for the future – Ghosn acknowledged that the policy and regulatory environment will be critical to enable the advancement of these technologies. Increasingly these debates are being played out on the stage of the world’s growing cities. Nissan becomes the first automotive company to join 100RC’s Platform Partners, a group of more than 90 leading companies, non-profit organizations, and other experts providing free tools and services to the 100 member cities of the network — to support their resilience-building efforts.Nissan will work with selected cities to test and pilot emerging mobility technologies, such as autonomous drive, driverless cars, electric vehicles and charging and vehicle-to-grid infrastructure, to enable cities to better plan for their adoption on a large scale.
