Castilla y León, Spain (Feb. 4, 2011) - Nissan International SA has joined Renault SA's partnership with the regional government of Castilla y León to advance zero-emission mobility in the region through the promotion of electric vehicles and an electric-vehicle charging network.
Under a Memorandum of Understanding signed by both parties, Nissan will deliver electric vehicles to Castilla y León through its dealer network, starting in 2011 with the 100% electric Nissan LEAF, the world's first affordable zero-emission vehicle for the global mass market. Nissan will also help define and validate EV charging devices in the region to ensure their compatibility with current and future regulations. The regional government plans to set up 900 public charging points by 2015. Of that total, 300 will be located on streets while 600 will be installed in underground parking areas. Castilla y León may supplement some with quick charging points depending upon market demand. By the end of 2011, 40 charging points are expected to have been installed above ground and 60 underground.
Castilla y León is also planning several financial and non-financial incentives to boost demand for electric vehicles, including tax credits and subsidies for home charging units.
"Castilla y León will be the first Spanish region to mass produce a 100% electric car when Renault, with whom we signed an agreement last year, starts producing here in late 2011. Our Regional Strategy for EVs includes measures to boost consumer demand and industrial activities linked to such cars. We are also investing in the necessary charging infrastructure to guarantee the success of this new mode of transportation. Together with Nissan and Renault, the two leading global automakers in electromobility, we now have a solid partnership for advancing the market," said Tomas Villanueva, Economic Vice President of the regional government of Castilla y León.
