Renault-Nissan Alliance Signs MoU with Sao Paulo
Together with the municipality of Sao Paulo, the two signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) which will form the basis for the introduction of EVs in the city.
"Sao Paulo municipality has been incisive in implementing actions against global warming. We have created municipal policies focused on climate change and we have a kind of an inventory about emission gases and greenhouse effect in São Paulo, which has been our guideline," Municipal Secretary of Green and Environment, Eduardo Jorge, says in a release.
"The establishment of this partnership is a complementary step to minimize gases emissions."
As part of the agreement, Sao Paulo, Nissan and Renault will study the opportunities and investments needed to make possible to use electrical automobiles in the city. A working group will be set up by the three partners to accomplish this.
