AZRA invests C$40 million (CAD) in transport electrification in Canada; 2K new charge points and Twizy
This small battery-electric city car designed by the Renault Sport team has a type-1 charging cable and side reflectors. Certified since 1 March 2016 by Transport Canada, its speed is capped at 40 km/h (25 mph) to come under the category of low-speed vehicles.
The Twizy will be available for lease at $99 (CAD) per month, including the costs of registration and insurance. AZRA-Partenaire-Renault-Partner has teamed up with Uni-Select to ensure the management and maintenance of the vehicle fleet.
To contribute to the expansion of the network and increase the accessibility of charging stations for Canadian drivers of electric vehicles, AZRA will install 2,000 charging stations over the next 18 months.
The stations, made entirely of aluminum, will be equipped with 7 to 50 kW power charges that can serve up to four users, for a total of 8,000 new charging points.
They will be installed for free on private property through the establishment of partnerships with owners of office buildings, shopping centres and other types of buildings.
AZRA’s mission is to contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by improving access to cleaner energy and accelerating the transition of vehicles operating on fossil fuels to electric vehicles.
