RWE Partners with BYD to Introduce Electric Cars in Germany
RWE and China's BYD have teamed to bring electrical cars to Germany, beginning with a trial fleet in 2011. A mass rollout in Germany and several other European markets is planned the following year.
The deal with the Chinese company, a battery specialist that has since expanded into car manufacturing, follows a string of agreements with other manufacturers, including France's Renault, Japan's Nissan and Daimler.
The centrepiece of the agreement is a package deal for electric car enthusiasts, consisting of BYD's electric vehicles and RWE's fast-charging posts and electricity supplied exclusively from renewable sources. Two models will be initially available and targeted primarily at consumers in cities driving shorter distances.
