[ARCHIVED] New Rochelle Unveils New Electric Fleet

New Rochelle’s New Electric Fleet Unveiled

The City of New Rochelle in partnership with Nissan of New Rochelle rolled out the City’s first full-sized official electric and zero emission vehicles at a ceremony at City Hall on Tuesday, April 28. The City will also receive two EV charging stations and five complimentary assigned parking spaces for zero-emission vehicles at the New Roc City and Intermodal Transportation Center garages. The vehicles will be used daily by the City’s Department of Development.

"New EV charging stations will make it easier for residents and visitors to power up the cars of the future, while new electric vehicles in the City fleet will cut our fuel costs and greenhouse gas emissions,” said New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson. “It's a win-win that advances New Rochelle's ongoing sustainability efforts."

Development Commissioner Luiz Aragon noted, “Our City is now prepared to embrace zero emission technologies by providing charging stations to our residents and visitors. New Rochelle is indeed the ideal destination in Westchester.”

“Nissan of New Rochelle is proud to be a part of the New Rochelle community, so we were happy to support the efforts of the City and Mayor Bramson to increase the sustainability of its vehicle fleet through the donation of these four all-electric Nissan LEAFs,” said Anthony Panarella, president, Nissan of New Rochelle. “LEAF offers the city the same benefits as it offers our retail customers – a great driving experience and much lower operating costs.”

“We thank the City of New Rochelle for providing charging for owners of Nissan LEAF and other plug-in vehicles in the local community,” said Sean Hopkins, senior manager, Nissan EV Infrastructure Strategy & Business Development. “Nissan is investing in communities like New Rochelle across the country because we know that public charging enhances the overall ownership experience for LEAF owners and helps new customers realize the benefits of owning an EV.”
