Nissan and Acciona partnership

Under this new partnership, Nissan will hold distribution rights for the Silence product range, including Silence S04 quadricycle vehicles and electric motorcycles, through its extensive retail network across Europe. The journey begins for customers with sales in France and Italy slated from June 2024, followed by Germany in September 2024.

Through this collaboration, Nissan customers will be able to access a range of uniquely designed and engineered Silence products – starting with the popular S04 Nanocar. Engineered for agility in bustling city environments, this compact, lightweight electric vehicle (EV) comes in two variants, the L6e and L7e, tailored to meet urban driving needs of all kinds. Each variant boasts a strong electric-powered range, from 149km (L7e) to 175km (L6e), with top speeds reaching 45km/h (L6e) and 85km/h (L7e) – ideal for daily commutes or exploring the town. Powered by two 5.6kWh batteries, it offers quick, simple, convenient charging options, including direct charging, battery swapping at dedicated stations (available with subscription), and home or office charging through a removable battery pack.


Leon Dorssers, Senior Vice President Marketing & Sales at Nissan AMIEO (Africa, Middle East, India, Europe & Oceania), said: “We believe the future is electric…but to make that future a reality, we have to do more to make it as inclusive as possible, available to all. Through this significant new partnership with ACCIONA, we’re ensuring that many more people can experience the power and excitement of electric mobility and take the first step on their EV journey. Opening access to Silence’s diverse range of brilliant, alternative products creates new and exciting possibilities for customers who are eager to join the EV revolution – combining clean mobility with cutting-edge technology, in functional and flexible vehicles.”

Nissan launch the Arc

This partnership comes hot on the heels of Nissan’s recent launch of The Arc – its new business plan focused strongly on driving value and strengthening competitiveness. Along with the launch of 11 bold new models to supercharge sales in the region, at the heart of The Arc is the strategic use of partnerships to drive business growth and transformation, hand-in-hand with like-minded organisations. Smart, forward-looking collaborations with innovative companies such as Silence showcase this strategy perfectly, seamlessly aligning with Nissan’s goals to explore new revenue streams, accelerate the transition to EVs, and respond to the diverse and changing needs of Nissan customers today and tomorrow.

Crucially, this partnership reinforces Nissan’s commitment to a sustainable future, and its ambition to help create a cleaner, safer, and more inclusive world. By giving customers across Europe access to new mobility solutions, offering greater diversity of choice, and expanding into new territory, Nissan is lowering the barrier to entry for those who want to go electric – ensuring the transition to electric mobility is inclusive and accessible for all.

Carlos Sotelo, CEO of ACCIONA’s mobility business and Silence, shares the excitement, stating: The needs of drivers in today’s towns and cities are changing – their commute, their attitudes to mobility, and what constitutes a realistic and efficient way for them to get around urban areas. To respond to this, we need to think smarter, smaller and lighter. Silence’s light electric vehicles (EV), partnered with Nissan’s strong distribution network, offers new, exciting, and clever options for urban mobility in Europe, shaping a more sustainable future.”
