The E.Leclerc Centers and the French carmaker Renault today signed a letter of intent with the aim of developing a program to equip the centers’ parking lots with charging infrastructure for electric vehicles.
The Renault-Nissan Alliance will accompany E.Leclerc in equipping its parking lots with charging stations for electric vehicles. As such, 50 E.Leclerc centers will be equipped by 2011, 150 by the end of 2012 and nearly 500 by 2015.
This unique partnership is proof of a joint ambition: The Renault-Nissan Alliance aims to be the global leader in electric vehicles; E.Leclerc intends to promote among customers practices which lead to more responsible consumerism and are therefore more respectful of the environment.
E.Leclerc and the Renault-Nissan Alliance will work together on launching a program to
equip the store’s parking lots with charging infrastructure for electric vehicles, and on
studying the implementation of new services related to these vehicles in the E.Leclerc
Centers, for example, short-term rental of electric vehicles.
