Enel X and ALD revitalise Sicilian e-mobility with Sibeg
The two businesses are working together to supply Sibeg, the Sicilian company that bottles and distributes Coca-Cola branded drinks, with a fully electric corporate fleet and an extensive charging infrastructure for the use of all residents

A new partnership is racing into the electric mobility ecosystem in Sicily. Enel X and ALD Automotive Italia, a leader in long-term car rentals, have signed an agreement to deliver 110 Nissan LEAFs to Sibeg, a Sicilian company that bottles and distributes Coca-Cola branded drinks. The highest selling 100% electric vehicle in the world will take its place in the corporate parking lot through the e-go Long-Term hire package, which includes Premium assistance service for the charging infrastructures that Enel X has been supplying for the last three years.
Sibeg, which is well known for its attention to environmental sustainability and technological innovation, is the first company in Europe to provide its Field Force with fully electric vehicles. Phase two of the “Green Mobility Project” brings an electric revolution, both in terms of vehicles and specific infrastructures, to the island. Phase one of the project, which was launched in 2015, provided Sibeg with a zero-emission corporate fleet for the company’s sales executives. The 100 Citroën C-Zeros that made up the Field Force in that first phase of the “Green Mobility Project” will now be replaced by the Nissan LEAFs. The sustainable mobility plan has revolutionised the corporate mobility of the factory, which produces the famous bottles, and since its implementation it has prevented the emission of 363 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere, a quantity that would take 27,225 trees to absorb in one year.
