Halifax, Nova Scotia – Nissan Canada has entered into an agreement with the province of Nova Scotia and Nova Scotia Power to promote the introduction of zero-emission vehicles in the province.

The memorandum of understanding signed by the three partners is based on a mutual agreement that electric vehicles are one of the best solutions to reduce automotive CO2 emissions, Nissan said.

“This announcement adds the province of Nova Scotia and Nova Scotia Power to a growing list of like-minded partners equally as committed as Nissan to promote and encourage the adoption of zero-emission vehicles as a way to combat climate change,” said Allen Childs, president of Nissan Canada. “As a manufacturer, we provide innovative vehicles that Canadians love and want to drive, but our partners play an important role in helping build the infrastructure support for electric vehicles that will make a roll-out of the Nissan Leaf and other electric vehicles in Nova Scotia possible.”

Nissan has agreed to provide ten Leafs for sale to Nova Scotia Power for its ShareReady Electric Vehicle program, which will collect information to better understand the impact of electric vehicle use in the province.
