Cagliari Municipal Police and Nissan have signed an agreement that will allow the traffic police of Sardinian capital to control traffic and motorists in “absolute silence”: the Japanese company has in fact close the biggest deal for the supply of 100% electric vehicles to a Municipal Police Force, as part of the Region of Sardinia project in favor of the reduction of emissions, for the protection of the environment and the health of citizens. From today, in fact, the City of Cagliari will complement the fleet of vehicles available to the Local Police Corps with 7 Nissan Leaf, which will be used in the services of the old town street, where the characteristics of the Japanese car (or the absence of harmful emissions and running noise levels) are particularly important for the health of citizens.
Bruno Mattucci, CEO Nissan Italy, said: “I am extremely proud of this new agreement with the City of Cagliari, with which a few months ago we launched an ambitious project for the reduction of CO2 emissions from transport. The supply of electric vehicles to a municipal police force is a demonstration of the versatility of our zero-emission vehicles to respond to the diverse needs of the public administration, especially where the need is to reduce the operating costs of the vehicle fleet management. ”
For the mayor of Cagliari, Massimo Zedda, “we continue on the path laid out in 2011 when we started to eliminate the blue car to switch to green transport, in view of the respect of the environment, protect the health of citizens and how we established with the “Covenant of Mayors” and with the approval of the energy Action Plan for Sustainable Energies ahead of European targets in 2020. With the CTM we have one of the bus fleet for local public transport more environmentally friendly in Italy, our Municipal Police is was among the first to be equipped with electric scooters, the car sharing system works and is increasingly appreciated by the citizens: with these new cars, Cagliari is the cutting edge in the field of sustainable mobility”.
