NISSAN has officially delivered the vehicle fleet that will be used during the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games to the local organising committee.
As the event’s official automotive partners, the company will supply an assortment of around 4,200 vehicles to meet the many day-to-day mobility needs during the Games.
The official delivery ceremony was held at the Sambadrome in Rio de Janeiro, one of the city’s landmarks and the venue which will host archery events during the Games. Attending the ceremony were Francois Dossa, President of Nissan Brazil, and Sidney Levy, Rio 2016 Organizing Committee’s General Director. The Brazilian queen of basketball, former player Hortencia Marcari, who is Team Nissan’s mentor, was invited to represent the Brazilian athletes.
The models will be used for transporting thousands of athletes, delegation members, and guests, for supporting operational activities and also some competitions. The fleet will be driven by volunteers selected by the organising committee.
