Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA) is entering into an agreement with Clean Cities-Atlanta (CC-A) to promote the development of electric vehicles and an electric-charging network.
As part of the agreement, NNA and CC-A will collaborate on plans to promote a charging infrastructure for EVs, as well as the deployment, operation and maintenance of a charging network. CC-A is a coalition of government agencies, utilities, public interest groups, and public and private fleets that advance the use of alternatives to gasoline, and diesel fuels in cars, trucks and buses. The partners in the agreement also will work to coordinate the establishment of policies and help streamline the deployment of an EV infrastructure.
The agreement adds Atlanta to a growing network of electric vehicle initiatives across the United States and around the world. Nissan, along with its alliance partner Renault, has formed partnerships with more than 80 governments, cities and other organizations to advance the deployment of electric vehicles. The Nissan LEAF will roll out to the state of Georgia in 2011.
