First electric vehicles to be deployed in Rennes
Trial phase to launch in autumn 2011
PSA Peugeot Citroën, Rennes Métropole, the Brittany Region and the Ille-et-Vilaine General Council join forces to test innovative EV applications
Over the years, PSA Peugeot Citroën has gained a worldwide reputation for its environmental leadership. In 2010, the Group sold nearly one million vehicles emitting less than 130 g/km of CO2 and is now the first European carmaker to market newgeneration electric vehicles in Europe, following the late 2010 introduction of the Peugeot iOn and Citroën C-Zero.
In partnership with PSA Peugeot Citroën, the Brittany Region, the Rennes Métropole urban community and the Ille-et-Vilaine General Council have pledged their commitment to a trial EV programme to support the local automotive industry. The trial is part of the Green Vehicles for Brittany (Véhicule Vert Bretagne) project to encourage and nurture promising local initiatives that are responding to emerging needs for carbon-free mobility solutions.
This cooperative three-year programme is designed to develop the electric mobility market of the future.
In particular, the trials will test the economic viability of the numerous and varied electric mobility business models.
