Grants for the acquisition of 2,000 hybrid taxes have been set up, and electric buses will be bought. On the private side, 4 carsharing schemes with at least 800 electric cars and 2,000 charge stops will be introduced in 4 Israeli cities including Tel Aviv and Haifa.
Diesel replacement: British Leicester will potentially replace a 95 strong diesel fleet with EVs if tests with ten Nissan Leaf proof successful. The Leaf will be joined by five Nissan e-NV200 within the following weeks and testing is to resume over six months.
Rapid charging in Canada: Six EV fast-charging stations are to go up along Canada’s Highway that connects Montréal and Quebec. The province will pay half the price of each station that are estimated to cost 60,000 dollars and would like to see them go up within the next six months.
