Renault-Nissan and Cordoba City Council Sign EV Agreement

The Renault-Nissan Alliance has just signed a new zero-emission agreement, this time with the Cordoba City Council in Argentina. Although officials of the two sides have only signed a letter of intent, they will form a joint working group that will try to determine whether bringing electric vehicle in the city of Cordoba is a worthwhile process.

This is the first agreement of its kind the Renault-Nissan alliance signs in Argentina, and the second in South America, as the two companies previously formed a partnership with authorities in Sao Paulo.

"In a determined effort to reduce emissions, the municipality has adopted short-, medium- and long-term strategic priorities to protect the environment. It intends to support new technologies capable of cutting pollution in general and CO2 emissions in particular,"
Renault said in a press statement.

Renault-Nissan has until now formed more than 60 such partnerships all over the world, signing agreements with municipalities, governments and other organizations that would contribute to establishing the necessary infrastructure for EV adoption.

Argentina is becoming a more important market for the Alliance, as Nissan earlier this month signed a deal with Manuel Antelo, who owns Car One Argentina, the largest automotive retail business in the country.

"While Renault Argentina S. A. has been a key contributor to the success of the Nissan brand in this country, we know that distinct business structures are now the best roads for both brands' business growth in Argentina,”
said Carlos Tavares, Chairman, Nissan Americas. “By forming a separate Nissan operation we allow Renault to concentrate on its business while positioning the Nissan brand for growth acceleration in this market. This reinforces our long-term commitment to Argentina."
