DISCOVER PARIS’ AUTOLIB

Imagine, you can rent a four-passenger electric car just about anytime you want. You walk out of your apartment or condo and there sits a Pininfarina-designed, Bolloré Lithium Metal Polymer battery-powered electric Bluecar (also pictured on page 3). You’ve paid your €144 annual membership fee to be part of the Autolib program. Your trip takes a hour, which costs you €9 or the equivalent of about US$12. You drop off the car at one of the 1,120 parking and charging stations around the city. At that point your financial responsibility for the vehicle ends. No loan to service, insurance or taxes or even fuel to buy, no maintenance to perform. It’s about as trouble-free car access as you could ask for.
That’s what some 6,000 subscribers, as of December 31, 2011, in Paris and 45 surrounding communities, now have available to them. Eventually, there will be some 3,000 Bluecars in the Autolib system. The first 1,0000 are now in service as of March 2012, with 300 more cars to be added monthly.

It is innovative electric vehicle programs like this that make Paris one of EV World’s Hot Spots. We are now seeking input from interested parties who’d like to join us on our first EV World tour. Tell us if you’re interested by completing the questionnaire at HTTP://EVWORLD.COM/TOURS.
