Paris to launch electric car share program

5 December 2011

Paris is launching an electric car sharing program to cut air and noise pollution on the city’s medieval cobblestone streets and beyond.

Autolib, a project built on the success of the city’s bike rental scheme, makes its debut today and officials want the self-service e-cars to be as much a part of Paris life as the Eiffel Tower or Notre Dame Cathedral.

While many world cities have been developing greener alternatives to carbon-emitting vehicles, Paris says its program is the biggest of its kind: 250 vehicles hit the road on Monday, 2000 are expected by next summer and 3000 are planned within the next two years.
