First 100 Renault electric cars to arrive in Vietnam in June

The first 100 hi-tech and environmentally-friendly Renault-branded electric cars will arrive in Vietnam in June.

It is part of the largest-ever deal in Southeast Asia that Auto Motors Vietnam, the authorised dealer of the French car manufacturer, has signed with the Mai Linh taxi company. 

According to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed in December, 2015, Mai Linh will import between 10,000 and 20,000 Renault-branded electric cars to use as taxis. 
On the occasion, the French Embassy and the Hanoi People’s Committee signed an agreement on an environment protection programme. 

Jean Noel Poirier, France’s Ambassador to Vietnam, said Hanoi needs to have equipment to gauge and analyse air quality to allow its citizens to have real-time information on air quality. 

He said France has a lot of experience in this field. All cities in France have a system to supervise air quality, and France wants to help Hanoi install a similar system.
