PARIS, France – Nissan is expanding its Electric Travel Guide to help travellers add new destinations to their sustainable journeys. The next editions of the guide embark on the cross-country adventure of a lifetime, with pit stops in Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia.
Nissan tested the route across the four countries with the Nissan Ariya. The 100% electric vehicle proved to be the perfect travel companion, with remarkable fuel efficiency and a range of up to 533km. With its welcoming lounge-like interior and spaciousness, Ariya is fully equipped for an enjoyable road trip.
Designed to help global travellers enjoy more conscious holidays, the Nissan Electric Travel Guide curates a novel mix of culture, cuisine and nature, connecting must-see spots along picturesque routes. With a range of dining options, hotel recommendations, local attractions and EV charging points along the way, the guide is an ideal solution for those planning the ultimate sustainable getaway.
Global travellers are increasingly prioritising impact and purpose when planning their trips. In fact, eight out of ten (81%1) say they want to travel to destinations where they can immerse themselves in the local culture, while six out of ten (62%2) say they want to be more thoughtful about where and how they travel.
“Sustainability is driving our efforts to accelerate the transition to an electrified future. We recognise that it is not only a guiding principle for all of us, but also a mindset,” said Friederike Kienitz, Senior Vice President, Sustainability, Corporate Affairs and Governance, Nissan AMIEO. “The Nissan Electric Travel Guide bridges the gap between electric vehicles and the lifestyle considerations that are key to achieving sustainability. It connects the dots between the car you drive and the best local destinations, restaurants and experiences to help you plan a unique, authentic and sustainable holiday.”
Following the launch of the first edition in Stockholm earlier this year, the new guides will take users on an extended journey through Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia – showcasing the many highlights on offer in their respective capitals. EV drivers can also choose to explore each city individually and plan their own trips.
From repurposed buildings and locally sourced food to eco-friendly hotels, Nissan takes EV drivers on a sustainable adventure. Explore the world-famous State Opera in Vienna; take in the unrivalled views of Prague, the ‘City of a Hundred Spires’; discover the awe-inspiring wonder of Budapest Castle; or stroll through Central Europe’s oldest public park in Bratislava. Users can do all this and more with the latest edition of the Nissan Electric Travel Guide.
Travellers can also plan a trip to Stockholm, the first city to be covered by Nissan’s ongoing series of digital content, with new locations to be added in the future.
