Renault-Nissan Alliance Partners with ACT

The joint effort made by Nissan and Renault to prepare the way for their range of future electric vehicles made another step forward this week, this time in Australia. The Renault-Nissan Alliance and the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the development of a Zero Emission Vehicles program.

"Today, Nissan is proud to partner with the ACT Government through the signing of this MOU," Dan Thompson, Nissan Australia CEO said in a release.

"Technology for zero emissions mobility is a reality and we are prepared to proactively explore ways to bringing this technology to the market with collaboration from the government. "

The agreement calls for a working team of representatives from the ACT Government and Nissan to be formed and try and identify potential areas of co-operation.

"The MoU we have signed with the Renault-Nissan Alliance will enable us to undertake formal discussions with a global leader in the development of EV technology about options and possibilities for the introduction of EVs to the ACT,"
ACT Chief Minister Jon Stanhope added.

"The reduction in carbon emissions through the uptake of EVs may be an important step in reducing our carbon footprint, and working toward our goal of a carbon neutral ACT by 2060."

The partnership with ACT is only the most recent such endeavor of the two carmakers. So far, the alliance has similar agreements with cities and companies in the US, Europe and Asia.
