The Dutch government has asked the Renault Nissan Alliance to aid in the introduction of electric mobility in the Netherlands and to participate in the plan designed to reduce CO2 emissions.
Renault and Nissan, with their international expertise in the field, will fill the roles of front-runner and development partner in the introduction of electric vehicles to the Netherlands.
The minister of transport, public works and water management, Camiel Eurlings said : “I appreciate the interest of the Renault-Nissan Alliance in the Netherlands as a potential test market for the sale of electric vehicles.”
The Renault-Nissan Alliance is targeting to become the leading manufacturer of mass-market zero-emission vehicles.
Marking its tenth anniversary this year, the Renault-Nissan Alliance is leading a collaborative approach with both business and governments and has signed nearly 30 agreements worldwide with partners to launch its first electric vehicle starting in 2010 and to mass market a full range of electrical vehicles in 2012.
