Nissan congratulates the City of Montreal for acquiring 100 Nissan LEAF electric vehicles.
The City of Montreal will soon take delivery of 100 new 2018 Nissan LEAF electric vehicles for its fleet.
“In 2005, the City of Montreal committed to reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 30 per cent by 2020 compared to its 1990 emissions,” said Montreal’s Mayor, Valérie Plante. “One of the most important means of combating greenhouse gas emissions includes the electrification of part of the vehicle fleet, and we take this top priority very seriously. For example, the City of Montreal owned 18 fully electric vehicles in 2015, it currently owns 129 and it will own close to 230 by the end of the year.”
Since its Canadian launched in 2011, 50 per cent of LEAF sales have been in Quebec.
“Quebec is a crucial market for Nissan, and I am very proud to see how this community has changed dramatically in recent years to adopt new measures to embrace electric mobility,” said Joni Paiva, President of Nissan Canada.
