Nissan unveils zero emission strategy
Dubai, May 25, 2008
Nissan plans to introduce a pure electric vehicle in the US and Japan in 2010 under its GT 2012 mid-term business plan.
The car-maker will then mass-market electric vehicles to consumers globally in 2012, it said in a statement.
Nissan Motor Co shared its vision of zero-emission mobility at the recent World Economic Forum on the Middle East at Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.
Nissan’s proposition was made at a workshop entitled “Managing Urbanization in the Middle East” that examined global changes affecting the way cities are managed.
Middle East cities are witnessing phenomenal growth and development. Such growth represents a challenge on both the environment and the infrastructure. The fact that the Middle East is also one of the fastest growing automotive markets in the World adds to the challenge for innovative mobility solutions, the company said.
“From a personal mobility perspective, Nissan firmly believes a sustainable solution can be found in zero emission vehicles," said Simon Sproule, corporate vice president, Global Communications and CSR division, Nissan Motor Co.
“Partnerships between the public and private sector are an important factor to making zero emission vehicles attractive and viable for consumers, especially in urban areas,” added Sproule. – TradeArabia News Service
