Casablanca – A Consortium of Renault Group, Schneider, and Moroccan M2M prepares to launch of first Moroccan-made electric car ahead of theCOP22 Summit
The project is part of a more ambitious plan to reduce 12 percent of CO2 emissions, and assign 10 percent of the automobile market to electric cars by 2030.
According to the French news website, L’Usine Nouvelle, Renault-Nissan, Schneider Electric, M2M and the National Agency for Renewable Energy Development and Energy Efficiency will reveal the architecture of the car on September, 22.
The same source continues that the consortium dubbed Electric Vehicle, which was established last April, has set in motion a mobility “ecosystem” that will be put to test during the COP22 Summit in Marrakech, which will take place between November 7 and 18.
Renault Group’s factory in Tangier will provide a fleet of Electric Cars that will transport the participants at the climate summit. Other Electric Cars from other manufacturers, such as Twizy, Kangoo, Zoe, Leaf and Evalia will take part in this operation.
The parties constituting the consortium will contribute with their different expertise in making the cars available and accessible. In addition to the expertise of Renault Maroc, which controls 36.9 percent of the local market share, the global specialist in energy management and automation, Schneider Electric, will work on the mobility ecosystem.
The economic payment will be handled by the Moroccan company, M2M, which specializes in secure electronic transactions, whereas Derichbourg will deal with the management of the charging stations.
