This Program for Supporting Electric Mobility in Public Administration began in 2015, with a pilot carried out by the delivery of 30 100% electric vehicles followed by an additional 170 electric vehicles in 2018. In this second phase, a complementary delivery of 159 vehicles.

It should be noted that the first 170 electric vehicles, related to the first phase of this Program began to be delivered in February of last year, in a ceremony presided over by Prime Minister António Costa.

The Environmental Fund was created in 2017 and aims to support environmental policies for the pursuit of sustainable development objectives, contributing to the fulfillment of national and international objectives and commitments, in particular those related to climate change, water resources, waste and conservation of nature and biodiversity.

This is yet another step towards a future of more sustainable electric vehicles, and the joint effort by operators and governments is key to a transition to 100% electric fleets, ensuring the path to the future sustainability of mobility. LeasePlan prides itself on its role as a key strategic partner in this process.
