Lombardy Region of Italy Begins Electric Car Plug-In Effort
The Italian region of Lombardy is to install 270 EV charging points in two major cities as it prepares to test some of the first EVs to arrive in the country.
The two cities of Milan and Brescia are to be the first in Italy to boast a complete, innovative charging structure for electric vehicles, allowing them to participate in the one-year trial of commercial and personal electric vehicles. The deal, signed Wednesday between French carmaker Renault and Italian utility firm A2A, will run for a year.
Sixty electric vehicles are to participate in the scheme, including the Renault Fluence Z.E. and the Renault Kangoo Z.E. Consumers will be able to rent the vehicles on a monthly basis at a rate comparable to a similar diesel model, say the firms.
