Mexico City, Mexico – The Renault-Nissan Alliance has announced a partnership with the government of Mexico City that will pave the way for the introduction of the Nissan Leaf in Mexico’s capital city in 2011.

It will become the first city in Latin America to receive the Leaf, and is part of the Mexico City government’s green plan, committed to reducing CO2 emissions from vehicles by promoting battery-electric vehicles.

Marking its tenth anniversary this year, the Renault-Nissan Alliance is leading a collaborative approach with businesses and governments, and has signed more than 30 other agreements worldwide. The company plans to launch its first electric vehicle starting in 2010, and to mass-market a full range of electrical vehicles by 2012. The all-electric Leaf will be the first vehicle launched under the agreement.
