Acciona & Nissan partner to distribute Silence s04 Nanocar

Leon Dorssers, Marketing & Sales at Nissan & Carlos Sotelo, CEO of ACCIONA’s mobility business are geared up for the EV future with the Silence s04 Nanocar

ACCIONA and Nissan have partnered to distribute the new Silence S04 NanoCar, an electric four-wheeled vehicle, specifically designed for urban living. The S04 combines the safety and comfort of a car, with the agility of a motorcycle. 

The partnership provides ACCIONA’s electric vehicle brand, Silence, with access to Nissan’s European dealership network, opening a vast distribution channel. 

The ACCIONA-Nissan partnership for inclusive electric mobility

Silence is ACCIONA's electric vehicle brand, which builds zero-emission motorcycles and cars with swappable batteries. The company has been carbon neutral since 2013 and in 2023, ACCIONA recorded sales of €17bn (US$18.2bn) and works across 40 countries. 

Nissan was founded in 1933 and is based in Yokohama, Japan. The company builds SUVs, sports cars, sedans, minivans and more. Nissan believes that building a global ecosystem to support sustainable and equitable transportation solutions is vital. As a result, Nissan launched Nissan Energy Share in Japan, to advance the value of electric vehicles across the country. The service will include Nissan’s energy management technology, which controls EV battery charging - and discharging. It also allows power to be shared from an EV to a building.

Nissan also recently formed a partnership with its fellow Japanese vehicle manufacturer, Honda

Nissan’s newest business plan, The Arc, includes the use of strategic partnerships to drive business growth and transformation. 

Together, the ACCIONA-Nissan agreement reduces the barrier for drivers who dream of going electric – ensuring the transition to electric mobility is inclusive and accessible.

The S04 comes in two models – the L7e and the L6e
  • The L7e is equipped with two batteries and offers 14kW of power, reaching 85km/h with a range of 149 kilometers.
  • The L6e, which can be driven without a driving licence, operates with one battery and 6kW of power, reaching a maximum speed of 45km/h.

For both models, the two-seater vehicle offers a removable battery system, enabling convenient charging, at home or in the office. 

The electric mobility revolution

Leon Dorssers, Senior Vice President Marketing & Sales at Nissan AMIEO (Africa, Middle East, India, Europe & Oceania) believes that the future is electric, but to make that future a reality, Nissan and the wider EV sector must 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,” said Leon. “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.”

“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,” said Carlos Sotelo, CEO of ACCIONA’s mobility business and Silence. “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.”

In June 2024, Silence’s e-motorcycle range will be available at Nissan retailers throughout France and Italy, with plans to expand into Germany in September.
