In the heart of Lisbon’s Cruise Terminal, during a ceremony presided over by Prime Minister, António Costa, and in the presence of Environment Minister, Pedro Matos Fernandes, LeasePlan delivered the first 100% electric vehicles, in the “Public Administration Mobility Support Programme, Phase 1”, consisting of 55 Renault Zoe cars. The remaining vehicles will be delivered in stages until the end of April.

"Governments have a say in the future sustainability of mobility, and proof of this is the transition from combustion vehicles to a 100% electric fleet," says António Oliveira Martins, CEO of LeasePlan.

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

As a key strategic partner in changing the mobility paradigm, LeasePlan is taking another step towards a more sustainable vehicle future. The mobility industry is undergoing a process of disruption and this requires an ever more concerted effort on the part of all operators.
