WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA – A division of MTS Allstream is adding two Nissan Leaf electric cars to its fleet. MTS Allstream is a subsidiary of Manitoba Telecom Services Inc., a leading communications company in Canada.

There are currently only four Nissan Leaf cars in Manitoba and 111 in Canada. 

"MTS is proud to have our name on these innovative and environmentally friendly cars," said MTS President Kelvin Shepherd. "When you see a vehicle branded with an MTS Sustainable Vehicle decal on the road you'll know this is a vehicle that is helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Manitoba.”

The replacement of older vehicles with more fuel-efficient and lower-emission vehicles is consistent with MTS Allstream's Green Plan. The company expects to reduce its absolute GHG emissions by 20 percent by 2020, starting from a 2008 baseline of 17,326 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
