Paris Launches World’s Largest Electric Car
Launched by Vincent Bollore, the Autolib electric car-share is modeled off the city’s popular bike share system, and it will be the largest program of its kind in the world. By December the program will include 250 electric vehicles, and it’s planned to expand in 2012 if the first leg of the project is successful.
Like Zip Car, the cars will be parked around designated spots on the streets of Paris. The program started its two-month testing phase yesterday with an initial 60 vehicles that spanned 10 stations, where the cars can be recharged. The cars offered thus far are Italian=designed Bluecars — small 4 seaters that are similar to Smartcars.
