Not long ago, Spain launched a wishlist of plans to make the country greener. It included a target of one million hybrid, plug-in and all-EV cars on roads by 2015. This is where Renault arrived with its projects around the world regarding EVs (Denmark, Portugal and Israel). But, Nissan's plant in Barcelona is laying off 1,680 workers due to the economic crisis, so the Ministry of Industry, as well as two regional Governments, have created a task force with Renault to give the EV car project a boost and retain workplaces in Spain. According to the Minister of Industry, Miguel Sebastián, a million cars will need three factories, so Renault has a hint on where they would be very welcome to build or keep one. Results are expected next February.
