As part of the agreement, Nissan and the City of Toronto will collaborate to promote electric cars on Toronto’s streets. Nissan will supply electric cars for purchase within the city.
The City of Toronto will continue with its existing efforts to develop plans to promote a charging infrastructure for EVs, as well as the deployment, operation and maintenance of a charging network, in concert with other relevant parties. The City will also continue to consider regulatory programs and bylaw changes to support the introduction and use of zero-emission cars (ZEVs).
The agreement adds Toronto to a growing network of zero-emission car initiatives across the world including partnerships in British Columbia and Quebec, as well as Mexico and Brazil. The Renault-Nissan Alliance has formed partnerships with over 60 governments, cities and other organizations to advance the deployment of electric cars worldwide.
