Renault-Nissan Alliance and The New Motion Forge Partnership
The New Motion was recommended by the City of Amsterdam, a long-term supporter of Renault and Nissan's ambitious zero-emission plans, as the ideal EMO partner to support the Alliance's EV pilot programme in this country.
Nissan agreed to make 100 units of the 100 percent electric Nissan LEAF available to fleet customers between February and June 2011.
Since then, The New Motion and Amsterdam have been actively preparing the necessary charging infrastructure to accompany the deliveries of the award-winning Nissan LEAF to the city.
The New Motion will be providing customers both home and office charging solutions in line with the Alliance's requirements, while Amsterdam has deployed its new generation Mode 3 Type 2 public charging posts that will provide EV drivers without private parking the convenience of normal, 16 ampere charging.
The alliance is taking a comprehensive approach towards the mass-marketing of electric vehicles which encompasses both the product and the infrastructure. To date, Renault and Nissan have entered into more than 90 partnerships with governments, municipal authorities and companies around the world to put in place the necessary incentives and infrastructure for the successful adoption of such vehicles.
Pierre Loing, vice president of product planning and strategy at Nissan International and head of the company's zero emission business unit in Europe, said: â€œOur partnership with The New Motion makes zero-emission mobility a reality for customers.
â€œThey can drive Nissan LEAF, knowing the infrastructure will be in place for them to recharge their vehicles at home, at the office, in the city and - importantly - along major routes to enable extended EV use.â€
