Mississauga, Ontario – Nissan has entered into an agreement with the City of Toronto to advance zero-emission mobility in the city. The two parties have announced a commitment to collaborate to promote the widespread adoption of electric vehicles.
“Nissan is a global leader in electric vehicles, and today the City of Toronto has shown its leadership and commitment to create a zero-emission culture in this great city,” said Allen Childs, president of Nissan Canada. “Through this agreement, our partners at the City of Toronto have further demonstrated their commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. We look forward to bringing the Nissan Leaf, the first affordable, mass-market, zero-emission vehicle to Toronto consumers before the end of next year.”
As part of the agreement, Nissan will supply electric vehicles for purchase within the city, while Toronto will continue with its existing efforts to develop plans to promote a charging infrastructure, as well as the deployment, operation and maintenance of a charging network, in concert with other relevant parties. The city will also continue to consider regulatory programs and bylaw changes to support the introduction and use of zero-emission vehicles.
The agreement adds Toronto to a growing network of zero-emission vehicle initiatives, including partnerships in British Columbia and Quebec.
