The Australian film star wants to inspire you to a greener way of life.

Famous Australian Margot Robbie has donned a wetsuit and been filmed in slow motion in a bid to raise awareness of green motoring.

The Nissan sustainability ambassador and part-time movie actress apparently loves surfing – but then Aussies learn it at school, don’t they? – and she’s put together a short film for the Japanese carmaker that takes the form of an open letter to society over artistic black and white images to try and inspire people to take up the challenge of living a cleaner life. 

Surfboards don’t seem like they’d be an ideal form of zero-emission transport for most, but the new Leaf electric hatch is probably more on the money, and the Wolf of Wall Street star has been on hand at various events to promote the company’s zero-emission initiatives.

Talking about the film, where she performs her own surfing, Robbie said: ‘I hope I can play a small role in inspiring people across the globe to explore alternative forms of energy and make the switch to drive a better future for everyone. The point is, we can all make a difference and we don’t need to wait for others to do it for us.’

Gareth Dunsmore, electric vehicle director at Nissan Europe said: ‘Nissan is committed to pioneering a future which empowers consumers to make the right choices in how they use and store energy.

‘Our Leaf and e-NV200 models are not only cleaner drives, they become mobile energy units too – the used batteries from these vehicles are put to good use as part of our xStorage energy storage solution which provides power to homes and even football stadiums across the world.’
