Nissan has taken the torch as the forerunner in the current electric vehicle market—and it’s a torch that they don’t seem to be planning to pass off anytime soon, either. In fact, they’re only gaining endorsements and followers and customers right now—and those aren’t just individual customers. Orange, a major telecommunications company in France, has brokered a partnership with Renault-Nissan for over 200 Renault and Nissan EVs to improve their fleet.
These cars will be used mostly for car sharing purposes; the efficiency and practicality of EVs make them a perfect fit for this function. “Thanks to the partnership between Renault and Nissan, the Alliance is able to provide Orange with the widest range of electric vehicles to meet its needs – from subcompact passenger cars to light-commercial vehicles,” said Christian Mardrus, Alliance Executive Vice President for Renault-Nissan B.V. and the Alliance CEO Office. “More Orange employees will soon be able to enjoy the many benefits of electric mobility: zero noise, smooth handling and acceleration, and zero tailpipe emissions. And the vehicles can be fully recharged with renewable energy at night, so they can be 100% charged every morning.”
