Renault in Georgian Deal

TBILISI, Georgia — Renault signed an agreement to provide electric cars to Georgia starting next year, the country's economic development ministry said Friday.

The French carmaker will initially conduct feasibility studies and help develop infrastructure, the statement said. Vera Kobalia, Georgia's minister for sustainable development, said in November that the government plans to buy about 4,000 electric cars from various producers over the next three or four years, while auctioning off the existing fleet.
