Nissan is teaming up with a new and promising generation of entrepreneurs, providing them with zero-emission vehicles to improve their business while reducing their environmental impact. And, as our collaboration with professional surfer Michelle des Bouillons shows, this can be done from anywhere – even on the wildest shores.
Michelle des Bouillons is a professional surfer and young entrepreneur whose business focuses on surfboards, accessories and swimwear, all made from sustainable materials. Nissan is making zero-emission mobility a reality for her business with the 100% electric e-NV200 and Nissan LEAF.
This collaboration was a perfect match for Michelle. “Going fully electric was an obvious mobility choice: Surfing takes me closer to nature than any other sport can, and it really has made me appreciate how precious our world is,” she says.
“When I started running my own business, I really wanted to make sure that it’s done in a sustainable way. With the 100% electric e-NV200 and Nissan LEAF driving feels completely natural. They are both quiet, safe and efficient – and I still get a kick out of the fact that there’s zero-emissions when I’m on the road.”
Nissan’s ‘Electrifying the World’ signature now features prominently on Michelle’s surfboards and swimsuit, and she hopes she can encourage more people to be more sustainable and go electric.
This is only the beginning. Nissan is looking forward to collaborate with more and more people like Michelle. “There are so many young entrepreneurs who really want to make a positive change and that’s why they are asking for sustainable mobility solutions.” says Busurkin.
The e-NV200 40kWh offers a range of 301km under the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) city cycle, making it a perfect solution for those looking to give their business the spark of electric and sustainable mobility.
