The announcement came during her first ever Facebook livestream, where the cameras, lights and equipment used for broadcast were powered by the new Nissan LEAF battery – a product that is produced by Nissan’s Sunderland Plant.

Nissan announced last October that it will enter the fast-growing Formula E series in the 2018/19 season.

The all-electric series gives Nissan a visible global platform to spread the message of ‘Nissan Intelligent Mobility’ – the three-pillar strategy to redefine how its vehicles are driven, powered and integrated into society.

Robbie said: “The world is going electric and technology is getting smarter. Even the cameras today were powered using the Nissan LEAF – something I never thought a car would be able to do.

“It’s crazy in a way but it’s another simple demonstration of how we can change the way we drive and live to create a cleaner and more sustainable world for everyone.”

Last October, Robbie announced the Nissan Electric Ecosystem, which aims to transform the way people drive and live, and more recently, she announced three new Nissan sustainability pilot projects at Futures 3.0 in Oslo.
