Nissan LEAF joins electric vehicle project in Malaga
Zem2All, a Spanish-Japanese project, includes 200 participants and has rolled out a network of 23 rapid charging points, including six with vehicle-to-grid reverse charging ability, in Malaga with aims to study how the technology is used.
In March, drivers passed a landmark 1.5 million kilometres on the project, which is supported by the Japanese New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organisation (NEDO) and Spanish technology centre CDTI. The project in Malaga is led by utility company Endesa.
The LEAFs will be available to rent by the hour, or by the day, with business users as a priority, and are supplied through local dealer SAFA Motor.
Marco Toro, managing director, Nissan Iberia, said: ‘Our company has a strong commitment to sustainable mobility, through the promotion of infrastructure in Spain, making new 100% electric vehicles, public disclosure agreements with agencies public leaders and participation in projects in the field as Zem2All.
‘This commitment to zero emission transport has the support of the dealer network, which contributes its local strength and capillarity in the territory to which electric vehicles are becoming a major option.’
