Renault-Nissan Partners with MOBI.E Tech

After the somewhat unexpected statement made yesterday by Carlos Ghosn, when he said the Leaf has been sold out for the year, the Renault-Nissan alliance announced today a new partnership aimed at promoting electric mobility, this time in Portugal.

"The Renault-Nissan Alliance believes that the true measure of electric mobility success is total customer satisfaction. Our partnership with MOBI.E Tech will ensure that all electric vehicle customers in Portugal are given the highest-quality charging experience possible,"
Emmanuel Delay, VP of Administration and Finance at Nissan International said in a statement.

With the help of electric vehicle solution provider MOBI.E Tech, the alliance aims to install charging stations accessible to all electric vehicle brands. The charging units will be located in public car parks, shopping centers, hotels, airports and even gasoline stations.

The charging stations will provide normal charging points, which will charge an EV in 6 to 8 hours. Fast charging points will allow the charging of an EV in less than 30 minutes. The network, although available for all EVs, will only serve, for now, the Leaf, which will launch locally in December.

"We do believe that the creation of an integrated, fully interoperable pan-European charging system, open to multiple energy providers, network charging operators, automobile constructors and other added-value service providers, will be one of the key challenges to the adoption of EVs on a massive scale. MOBI.E Tech software platform was architected from the beginning to support such a multiple-entity complex environment," Fernando Baptista, General Manager of MOBI.E Tech added.
