Renault-Nissan Alliance to Partner with TMH
Under a memorandum of understanding, the Renault Nissan Alliance and TMH to offer electric vehicle customers a competitive e-mobility package through the respective Nissan and Renault EV dealers in those markets.
The package will include the necessary infrastructure for charging an Alliance electric car and also the installation of such a unit. TMH will secure the electricity for the charging unit through its network of local utility providers.
In Austria, TMH will also provide customers with certification that the electricity from their charging unit is derived from renewable energy sources, making them eligible for electricity subsidies in that market.
Philippe Klein, executive vice president of corporate planning, product planning, programs & control at Renault, said: â€œWe are confident that this partnership will help to accelerate the development of a mass market for electric vehicles in both countries. Customers there will have the opportunity to discover e-mobility with our first three electric vehicles, Fluence Z.E., Kangoo Z.E. and Twizy, starting in January 2012, followed by ZOE at the end of 2012.â€
Thomas Raffeiner, founder and CEO of TMH, said: â€œEV customers expect integrated electric mobility solutions. Our job is to develop, build and operate safe and convenient energy and infrastructure services at home and public. Together with our local utility partners, The Mobility House will provide seamless access to energy and energy-related services to all Renault and Nissan EV customers anywhere anytime.â€
