Renault-Nissan Install EV Charging Stations around Paris for COP21 Summit

Renault-Nissan and partners worked to install 90 new EV charging stations around Paris and in the city to prepare for the COP21 Climate Change Summit, which took place from the end of November to Friday, December 11.

Renault-Nissan partnered with a variety of organizations and companies in France including the Paris City Council, Aeroports de Paris, the national railway company SNCF, and two energy providers to encourage Parisians to consider electric vehicles and spread awareness about eco-friendly cars and the environmental harm of gas-powered vehicles.

The charging stations were used during the COP21 conference to charge the 200 electric shuttle buses that transported more than 20,000 delegates and participants from around the world. The stations are quick charging stations that recharge the battery from 0% to 80% in only half an hour.

Renault-Nissan partnered with energy providers who promised to provide clean solar, wind, and hydro energy rather than energy from burning fossil fuels. France is known for its low carbon emissions, producing a fraction as much carbon as the rest of Europe.

At James Ceranti Nissan, we’re excited to see what will be coming to the United States!

Tips for Packing Presents in the Car

Pack presents in your car like the pro with these tips!

Packing presents in the car is one of the most head-scratching parts of holiday travel, but there are easy and efficient ways to get it done. Follow these tips and make your holiday a little bit easier.

One of the best ways to save space is waiting to wrap the gifts until you get to your destination, but only do this if your hosts don’t mind you stealing a room for a couple hours to do your wrapping.

If you’d rather pack first, you’ll want to fit as much as you can in totes or laundry baskets, any hard plastic carrier that won’t get squished and fits in your trunk. This makes it a lot easier to carry the gifts to and from the house, and it also lets you pack inside without freezing your extremities off in the cold.

Put heavy things on the bottom, with flat packages on the sides of the tote and tall, thin boxes in corners. Gift bags can sit on top of the heavier boxes on the bottom, and extra gift bags that don’t fit in the totes can be shoved into crevices.
