France’s Autolib: Real Electric Vehicle City Planning with Guaranteed Drive and Park
The new Parisian car-sharing system called Autolib gives both residents and tourists the ability to zip across Paris, at a modest charge, with zero carbon emissions. The Autolib program was instituted in 2011 and now has 1,740 cars, with around 700 charging stations with space for a minimum of three vehicles. The expansion plan will soon encompass 3,000 cars and around 1,060 charging stations. It took less than one year to have over 42,000 people signed up for the Autolib program. It seems the idea of an electric vehicle fleet with guaranteed parking is incredibly popular; with ten percent of the signups being the tourist population. If you have an international driver’s license as well as a photo ID you can choose from online registration or one of the sixty subscription stations and be behind the wheel in around six minutes.
