Renault-Nissan announced Monday that it had signed an agreement with Leclerc to install charging stations for electric cars in its parking lots. The Franco-Japanese car company is expected to sign another such agreement with a European shopping centre giant.

The number of spaces at E. Leclerc stores will “depend on the number of electric cars” said Michel-Edouard Leclerc, director of the French retailer.

Fifty E. Leclerc centres will have charging stations by next year; 150 by the end of 2010; and 500 by 2015, with ultimately 260,000 parking spots.
